telnet-server-0.17-25.i386.rpm is 'on' ?

When I do chkconfig --list it shows me that telnet is 'off', which is what I want, but it also lists 'telnet-server-0.17-25.i386.rpm' as 'on'. Why is this - I don't want any telnet.

The file 'telnet-server-0.17-25.i386.rpm' is in the /etc/xinetd.d directory - should I delete it?

Thanks in anticipation for your help.

telnet-server-0.17-25.i386.rpm is the telnet-server package (RPM), with it you can install telnet-server.

It should not be in that directory, so you can delete it.

Thanks, I'll delete it.
Any idea why it should show up as a service, and 'on', when I do chkconfig --list ?
Ta, Jack.
