-bash-2.05b# cat /etc/xinetd.d//telnet
# default: on

disable = no
flags = REUSE
socket_type = stream
wait = no
user = root
server = /usr/sbin/in.telnetd
log_on_failure += USERID

would do the work... he repeated... "the service name is telnetd
So, you know now that I am testing it on my Linux box and learning from my experience I had at the interview.
