I'm looking for an easy way to turn off all services on a router. I know auto-secure does a lot of the security functions for you, but I would like to be able to control everything myself.

If anyone knows a single command that will turn off all possible services on a router it would be greatly appreciated if you could share it with me.

You can use the "auto-secure" options. These more or less lockdown the router from all vulnerable service.

If you have SDM enabled you can also use the "One-Step Lockdown" wizard that also turns of all services that could be vulnerable. Also SDM has a "Security Audit" feature which will go and probe the router config and tell you open or vulnerable services on it and will also give you an opportunity to fix them if you want to.

Hope it helps.
