Suse 10.1 runlevel "sshd"

New to Linux. To stop services I don't want running "anything server". I just surf and shop online. What can I set the runlevel to safely? or perhaps what file do I edit?

Let me see if I understand your question? You want to know what to do to not run server applications? I use suse 10.1, and I don't think I have to do anything to keep servers from running, but I might have just edited it so long ago that I forgot.

Profile says you are running Suse, so run YAST go to the System Services (Runlevel) and configure what you want to start or not start in the default runlevel

Other distros have other tools to accomplish that task..

sshd is the secure shell daemon, a server that allows you to connect to your machine remotely through an encrypted connection.

When I purchased Suse, I also purchased several linux books. Linux Bible 2006 edition being one of them. I finally picked it up. The solution was right there:
# su
# type in root password
# sevice sshd stop
# chkconfig sshd off

I'm just getting my feet wet with the command line. I'm thinking I'm gonna like this. It makes things real simply to get done.

Thanks for the replys that I received
