Is there a way to turn this off so that if someone is trying to use this
command the connection will be refused????

Nice userid, BTW.
The SCO manual page for the finger command don't seem to tell the
whole story. Here's what it says:
the comment field, ``Brian Foster, Mission, x70, 767-1234,'' contains
for the ``In Real Life,'' ``Office,'' and ``Home Phone'' columns of the
Yet there is an entry in my /etc/passwd file for which the finger command
reports "Name," "Office," and "Office Phone" instead of "Name", "Office,"
and "Home Phone". I have tried to emulate this entry for other users, but
the heading "Home Phone" keeps coming up instead of "Office Phone." Also,
of course, the "Office Phone" heading is visible when examining
/usr/bin/finger with the strings command. Additionally, there is an "m"
option in the usage string when running the program which is not mentioned
in the manual page.
What I would like to do is to put a user's real name, employee number (not
SSN), department, title, and extension number into this field. Of course,
the employee number could be kept with the real name; and the title could
be kept with the department in the "Office" field; but right now the
extension number comes up as "Home Phone" instead of "Office Phone."
