    Port 80 Open

    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.

    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.

    [edit]
    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

    thanks

    That's weird you could try Sygate 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...

    thanks
