To expand on this...

Normally you'll want to setup some sort of firewall (IPTables). Nearly all the firewalls in place today are front ends (or not) of IPTables. Head over to www.freshmeat.net and pick yourself out one that seems nice to you, might I suggest looking at firestarter. Then you can close whatever ports you like and monitor the activity on them.

Cool

Ident service uses this port. As it name says, the idea is to identify users. And it was a good idea - in the days of open Internet. Now it cannot be trusted, because many people have it configured (if they're running it at all) to send false info. And it's not a good idea to provide true info - it can be used in many ways, you don't like many of them. That's why, if you can, turn ident off (or block it using a firewall). Some apps require it (certains IRC servers, for example). If you're using such one, use the ident providing false info.
