Servers? Services? What?!

I used nmap localhost to find out some things I dunno about

9/tcp open discard
13/tcp open daytime
37/tcp open time
111/tcp open rpcbind
787/tcp open unknown

Im running NAT , is that why these 5 I dunno about are running?
If they are not needed how to I disable these?
Im running Samba too

Discard, daytime, and time are most likely just responding due to being in most default (x)inetd configs. The other two, I can't say for sure. You didn't mention which distro you're running but the config file should live somewhere in /etc. If you edit your inetd config file and comment out the lines for those services and restart the daemon, those ports should then come up clean.

Technically you don't "need" any of them .. I would immediately disable
discard , daytime, time, and what ever is using port 787 ? If you are using nfs you may need rpc bind if you
are not or don't think you are disable it.

Not sure of your distro but I will try to be agnostic ...

if you are using inetd comment out the lines that look like the following in /etc/inetd.conf

# discard stream tcp nowait root internal
# discard dgram udp wait root internal
# daytime stream tcp nowait root internal
# daytime dgram udp wait root internal
# time stream tcp nowait root internal
# time dgram udp wait root internal

as for the rpcbind that is distro specific and it may start with some other named service
so in redhat rpcbind starts when you star the nfs service.

As for the last one , I have no clue ?
