start stop daemons
Well, this is a pretty newbie question but I think someone here might answer me in a few lines :)

How can I start/stop daemons? ftp,http,....
How can I know which services are being executed, and also which ports are opened for them?

Thanks in advance.

If you are using Mandrake as your profile says, the best way is to go to Mandrake Control Center (find it under the menu or type mcc in the console) then go >> System >> DrakXServices. You should be able to start-stop any service from there...

Most of the daeomons startup scripts are in /etc/init.d. So if you'd like to start httpd you would do:

/etc/init.d/httpd start

or to stop it:

/etc/init.d/httpd stop

or to restart it:

/etc/init.d/httpd restart

To know what ports these applications are binding to you could do this:

netstat -l

This will tell you what ports are listening and what applications have been binded to those ports.
