re: security and results of netstat probe


Hello All:

In acknowledgement of what I don't know (and paranoia) I did a:

netstat -an | grep LISTEN

and obtained the following:

tcp 0 0 0.0.0.0:32768 0.0.0.0:* LISTEN
tcp 0 0 127.0.0.1:32769 0.0.0.0:* LISTEN
tcp 0 0 0.0.0.0:111 0.0.0.0:* LISTEN
tcp 0 0 0.0.0.0:6000 0.0.0.0:* LISTEN
tcp 0 0 127.0.0.1:25 0.0.0.0:* LISTEN

please tell me I have nothing major to worry about. Specifically, what is /tmp/ksocket-root/klaun????

Check here for common ports. As for klaun, looks like a KDE Launcher type listner. If your firewall is configured not to accept any external traffic on those ports, you should be OK. Are you running KDE as your desktop?

Let me ask some more questions here.
I'm using regular dialup w/ my isp, which is using dhcp for assigning tcp/ip addresses. Can I still configure a firewall and use it in a way that won't be obtrusive for me? On RH 7.3, what exactly is the firewall called?

Sure you can.

Run this for the details on ipchains (the firewall):

man ipchains

There are many firewall builders out there, I like this one

Doesn't the distro come w/ a firewall, and isn't ipchains a firewall itself?

Yes, ipchains is a firewall. fwbuilder makes it VERY easy to configure complex firewall rules. You can do it from the command line, if you would prefer. I just like the GUI.
