In knoppix ( 2003-04-28 ) after hd install if I run ShieldsUP! site to test ports

http://grc.com/x/ne.dll?rh1ck2l2

It finds that Port 80 HTTP service is open.

what is keeping this port open? how to shut it?

Im not in a local net. My box is a single workstation.

Any ideas?
Thanks

Port 80 sounds like a running apache.

Port 80 sounds like a running apache.

Thanks, but it is still open after Apache uninstall. It is hard to die.

apt-get install < guarddog or firestarter or bastillelinux > firewall and check to make sure apache actually got shutdown during removal.


Also check in /etc/inetd.conf to make sure no service is using port 80

bastille and the others firewalls fails to install.
but lokkit is running fine.
After lokkit --high all ports are Stealth (shieldsUP) but Port 80 HTTP remains open :x

thanks

That's weird you could try Sygate (http://scan.sygatetech.com/) just in case GRC is doing something strange but I've never had any problems using it.

I have just changed this in /etc/ined.conf

#off# https stream tcp nowait root /usr/sbin/tcpd /usr/sbin/sslwrap -nocert -addr 127.0.0.1 -port 80

to this

https stream tcp nowait root /usr/sbin/tcpd /usr/sbin/sslwrap -nocert -addr 127.0.0.1 -port 80

...and know port 80 HTTP is closed...:lol:

thanks
