What do you exactly mean by enabled/disabled? If you mean what ports are currently up and what's listening on them, then you can use nmap.

Most distrobutions come with nmap installed, if not you can find it here [1]. Just run nmap by itself for a basic list of features.

Download the source from the web site that I posted and compile it. This way you know you will have the latest version.

What distrobution are you using?

Nmap is indeed excellent for scanning ports

Go to http://rpm.pbone.net and search for nmap and you should find the rpms for your distro

oh, forgot to mention this: once you've got nmap installed, open console and type:

nmap [your ip-address]

e.g. nmap xx.xxx.xxx.xxx

Good luck!
