I have done a clean install with Mandrake 9.1 ...so far so good!
The more I use it the more Im anti-MS ,
Here is my question....
I have configured the firewall that came with Mandrake, after doing some limited port scans on my system I have found out that certain ports remain 'Closed' .... here is a list of ports found.
80 , 113, 135, 443 (via Gibson Research)
Now I understand that im not as much as risk like a ms-based os.I am using a motorola surfboard cable modem via ethernet
How can I close these ports without disabling any of my network connectivity?
Can these ports remain hidden from port scans?
I dont want to be a sitting duck on the network with ports drawing attention to the advanced eye.
Thank you to all who read this and have any informative information.
Viva La Linux!!
