ION 8600 - Is it possible to disable Telnet?

Published date: 09 June 2020

Issue
Is it possible to disable Telnet on an ION 8600? 

Product Line
ION 8600 Series

Environment
Meter Communications

Resolution
It is not possible to disable Telnet on the ION 8600. The meter will only allow a Telnet connection on TCP Port 23, so if this port is disabled on the network, it will not be possible to send a Telnet request to the meter. 

The ION 8650 series has the ability to disable Telnet from within the meter settings.
