open ports

I scanned my machine for open UDP ports and this came up:

Port State Service (RPC)
1058/udp open nim

what is that?

best regards,

``nim''? I'm not familiar with that one. Try:

netstat -ap

That'll show all the network related information and the PID and program name that's associated with it. Then you can investigate what the program corresponding to the ``nim'' entry is all about. Try something like:

rpm -qf ``nim-binary''

where ``nim-binary'' is the full path to the nim program (/usr/bin/nim, or whatever)

Hope this helps,
