comment Change login prompt on Debian server
I am well aware of security implications when using plain text protocol such as telnet, thank you! But I am dealing with a closed commercial product which relies on telnet being enabled. And by no means Debian server is exposed to unsecure networks such as Internet :)

comment Change login prompt on Debian server
I tried installing "inetutils-telnetd" package. In case of telnetd from this packahe "-h" has actually an effect, but only to what is printed before login prompt. Basically with -h on, it will not print host information (like Linux version, hostname tty etc).

OK, this looks promising, but it does not actually have an effect. I changed inetd.conf as you suggested, restarted inetd service, but still i get hostname in login prompt. I did try to run in.telnetd with "-h -debug" options from command line (inetd was disabled) nad still the same result. Perhaps telnetd is ignoring -h option.
