Re: Re: How do I disable (close) ports?
Thanks for all the response, comments and suggestions. Moving portmapper
from /etc/init.d solved my issue. As for commenting our services in
/etc/services, I am surprised that this isn't supposed to work and that it
is not the proper way to disable services.
I have a restricted services file and a default (open) services file. Some
services are disabled, i.e.
9/tcp open discard
13/tcp open daytime
109/tcp open pop-2
987/tcp open unknown
by commenting them out of /etc/services.
