Disabling Telnet

How do you keep users from logging on while you do file maintenance? Is there a way to temporarily disable telnet?

Go into /etc/inetd.conf and comment out telnet. Then restart inetd with the HUP (kill -1 signal).

To turn enable telnet, do the same thing, but take out the comment.
