I have a request from audit to remove finger service in Solaris 8 machine.
I try putting remark in /etc/inetd.conf and pkill -HUP it, but when i type finger it still there.
from another host (substituting an appropriate username and hostname, of course), or:
from the system you're testing. You should get a "connection refused" message.
By the way, it is good security practice to go ahead and disable all services that aren't needed.
What do you mean by typing finger? Can you see the service running? To type finger is not the way to test it :)
