Re: http port open?? how can that be?

Already checked that.  inetd.conf shows nothing about http
and I do not have a xinetd.  Any other guesses?

just guessing...

inetd (or xinetd) may be listening to various ports whether you have
services to run on them or not. check your /etc/*inetd.conf setup
and /etc/init.d/*inetd reload after tweaking (if this is the problem)...


things are more like they used to be than they are now.
