You may not have to write a telnet exit point. Check out Application
Administration from iNav.

To find it, right click on the system name in iNav and select Application
Administration. This will bring up a window with three tabs on it. Select
the "Host" tab. Find Telnet in the list and expand it. I"m pretty sure
there is an entry for Telnet initialization. Select it (or press edit, I
don't remember). This will bring up a window. In the window select "Deny
by default" or "Deny all". Then add your userID and set it to allow.

This is all from memory and I don't have access to a system right now, but
I'm fairly confident it's all there.

Not entirely. Although perhaps irrelevant to your situation, given
available hardware and communications protocols...

Minimally there is also Twinax and APPC [maybe identified as SNA?]
for many 5250 emulators. So an emulator session may still be possible
just as direct attach 5250 hardware and STRPASTHR can still access the
system without TELNET [even without any TCP/IP] being available. The CA
and PComm emulators always used to offer a choice for the type of
connection [method of communication], and only the TCP/IP connection
type [I do not think TELNET is actually named] would be impacted by no
telnet server being active at the target system.
