hi:

1) Install ssh (secsh as hp name) and configure it
2) disable telnet with a cooment in /etc7inetd.conf
3) re-read the inetd.conf with inetd -c

Re: What are the ways current SSH mechanism in place for Telnet replacement?

first off, if you have not done already, (this is included v11.23 and after if I am not mistaken), you need to install HP's version of openSSL and ssh packages.

after that, you can replace your command

telnet

with

ssh

but this is the tip of the iceberg as far as the ssh usage goes. You can do remote command execution, scripted file copy between servers using scp (included in ssh package) and more.

Re: What are the ways current SSH mechanism in place for Telnet replacement?

security is the biggest thing that telnet lacks and ssh has.

on a telnet session, when you type your password and hit enter, if I have a network sniffer and set it up between your workstation and the server you are connecting to, I can see your password in CLEAR TEXT.

This is the biggest selling point of ssh
