Can anyone please explain me the functionalities of the below three service commands? Thanks.
(config)# service finger
(config)# no service tcp-small-servers
(config)# no service udp-small-servers
Thanks & Regards,

The router runs services historically similar to UNIX.
TCP small services are echo, chargen, discard, daytime
UDP small services are echo, chargen, discard
