The basic idea is to comment out the ftp entry in /etc/inetd.conf then
cause inetd to reread its configuration or:
$ sed 's/^ftp/\#ftp/' /etc/inetd.conf > /etc/inetd.new # Comment out ftp
entry in /etc/inetd.conf
$ mv /etc/inetd.new /etc/inetd.conf # Move new file into place
$ net stop inetd # Stop inetd
$ net start inetd # Restart inetd
Note that you could also send a sighup to the inetd to cause it to
reread it's configuration (of course there are two inetd processes
running and I'm not sure if you need to send the sighup to both or not).
