ssh server without telnet

I installed telnet-server-1.1-38.i586.rpm on my SuSE 9.1 box. I use it to connect from my Windows XP box using PuTTY and ssh. This works fine except that the server not only listens on ssh port 22 it also listens on telnet port 23.

My question is can I close the telnet port and keep the ssh port open, or is there an ssh only server for SuSE 9.1? I don't really want to put a firewall on the SuSE, makes file sharing kinda hard.

Thank you

Check your /etc/inetd.conf or /etc/xinetd.conf and comment out (place a # at the start of the line) any reference to inetd. Then you need tell inetd to reload - 'killall -HUP inetd'.
