Just curious but when I do a local port scan I get
22/tcp open ssh
80/tcp open http
111/tcp open sunrpc
885/tcp open unknown
899/tcp open unknown
901/tcp open samba-swat
904/tcp open unknown
908/tcp open unknown
912/tcp open unknown
917/tcp open unknown
918/tcp open unknown
945/tcp open unknown
969/tcp open unknown
971/tcp open unknown
3306/tcp open mysql
6000/tcp open X11
I wonder what the unknowns are and the other funny thing is I cant do a remote port scan on it. I run nmap and it just hangs there forever. I can remotely scan another linux machine I have though. Which doesnt make sense to me.
nmap-services does not have a listing and nmap will run until I cancel it. Also tried many different options I guess my main concern is do you think that it is anything to worry about? After doign a netstat --tcp the foreign address is the same as the local.Could I have some funcky service running that needs those ports?
netstat -anp (or lsof) should give you overview and PID of app running on those ports, run the PID against what you see in "ps ax -eo pid,args" or alike and investigate if the binary is ok/allowed to run.
