Hello,

Under Services in my System Configuration Utility both Telnet and Telephony are ticked (Telnet is reported as not running, Telephony as running). Is it safe to clear their boxes? What are these processes?

Thanks,

Penny.

According to The Elder Geek, Telephony basically controls all dialup activity and in some cases DSL/Cable activity. It is possibly needed and should be set to manual. Telnet is a remote login 'feature' that is a major security hole. Unless you have a specific reason to use this, keep it disabled.


On a side note, you should not use the system configuration utility for editing services, it will allow to disable system critical services without warning. Always use Control Panel/Administrative Tools/Services... it also accessed by going to run and typing services.msc. It is much safer and easier to use.
