well guess what everyone!!??

checked the router and RIP was off. Could not find tftp or snmp.

Could not edit files in /etc/rc1.d and /etc/rc2.d and so on. What is the trick with these files? All of the files in this directory started with K...something and then the service name such as snmp etc etc.

thanks again everyone!!

Well that rules out the router then.

They're sym links to each program for each run level if it starts with a K then at that run level the program won't be started if they start with an S then they will you can change the letter at the start to alter whether they do or not but you're better using chkconfig command - man chkconfig for the full syntax.

chkconfig --list to see all whats starting up at what run level

If tftp and snmp ain't listed as on in chkconfig --list then you ain't running it.

The K is for killing the process on shutdown (it's just as important to kill things is a specific order as it is to start them in a specific order). You have to be root to edit those files.
My router doesn't allow me to turn off tftp, and I don't worry about it. . .

ok, thanks everyone.

I will take looking_losts word. If chkconfig --list does not show up tftp and snmp starting up at any level then i will not worry about it anymore.

I have had enough of ports!!!

I will say it again and again, i love these groups!!!!
