    I know Real the problem is that sudo nanoing the 'services' file on the terminal is a fucking pain

    it has like 6000 lines and you have to arrow scroll etc...

    is there any other way???

    also what blocks should I block, telnet , ssh, but what others do hackers use for remote logins and code execution

    basically I just need 80 and 443 all other ports can be blocked but # a million lines :/

    I found a way, I have to edit the 'services' file and put a # on telnet


    but the fucking thing says 'You don't own this file'


    fucking mac
    I don't see how it's different from Linux. You need to edit it as root with "sudo".

    Just throwing some ideas... I don't know macosx at all. Try locating telnet via "whereis" equivalent. Then move the binary out as "telnet_" and compile a dummy C binary, like
    int main(void){return 0;}
    and call it telnet; so every time telnet is called it always succeeds, but nothing really happens.

    How to remove telnet from OS X 10.8 ??

    I know this is hardly the most appropriate forum but it's the only computer one I'm registered in and I don't frequent apple forums so my question is:


    I would like to disable the ability to use the tenet command on the Mac OS X 10.8 terminal.

    What do I have to do, what specific file do I have to delete ?? it's in system ? library->??

    Also on mountain lion why is there no option to turn IPv6 off?? it only shows me link-local or wtf
Working...
