Question:
We have a security requirement to disable telnet functionality on host systems- Does disabling telnet functionality on a host system affect Spectrum functionality?
 
Answer:
Disabling telnet functionality apart from removing the ability to use telnet functionality in OneClick to devices can also impact NCM configuration captures which can use telnet.
You should verify NCM functionality is not affecting testing before completely disabling telnet functionality.
Refer also to the NCM documentation for further details:
