port 113 used by what service ?


Hy!

I did an nmap on my new server (SLES8) and found a service running on port 113.

As I found out this may be something like an Auth service.

I tried to find out which service uses this port via netstat but i was not successful.

What can i do ?

I would like to turn of the service that uses the port because I didn`t need it in the past.

Thanks for your help !!

It's used by identd. Generally you don't want the service running, but you do want the port set to reject rather than drop on your firewall, or even possibly open (not recommended) because IRC and some other programs try to do reverse IDENT lookups.
