Re: Server processes

Some distros have it in different places, and some distros don't even use inetd. I don't know anything about SuSE, though.

You could have a basic firewall set up, something like:

iptables -P INPUT DROP
iptables -A INPUT -p icmp -j DROP
iptables -A INPUT -m state --state ESTABLISHED -j ACCEPT
And you wouldn't have to worry about anything connecting to FTP, Telnet, HTTP server, or anything anymore.

EDIT: Wow! Talk about tired. Take that ! out before ESTABLISHED

Don't drop icmp. It doesn't accomplish anything.
