I have too much active/listening ports...


My question is why the machine has so much active/listening ports?
are these normal ?:
792/tcp open unknown
798/tcp open unknown
915/tcp open unknown
1014/tcp open unknown
I use samba, so it is maybe why
In comparison, the other pc just installed has nthg really to show as active/listening ports

thank you

you can do a netstat -plan as root to find out what service(s) are listening on those ports
