Bug: Localhost Telnet Active After Disabling Webserver

I've disabled the web interface. Yet this still exists:

 

root@vitrycore:~# netstat -ntlp | grep telnet
tcp 0 0 127.0.0.101:55523 0.0.0.0:* LISTEN 694/telnetd

 

Shouldn't the telnet daemon be stopped too?

Yeah this has been discussed before and currently that particular instance is not tied to the Web UI configuration, and that is on our TODO list to implement.

Apparantly it's started by ubnt-util, a big C++ binary blob for which we don't have the source. Otherwise I'd send a patch. Ugh.

Actually I already made the change yesterday (only starting the instance if Web UI is enabled), so it will be in the next release. Thanks for the feedback!
