Thanks for the reply. I understand perfectly well what filtered means, and perhaps I didn't phrase my original question very well.
I was curious simply because I have never seen...

I should have mentioned the server in question is running FreeBSD.

I telnetted to 6699 but there was no response (i.e. no response to any keypress.)
Telnet to port 21 however givers the standard USER / PASS requirement, and they are nice enough to have the HELP...

Doing a little "work" this evening, I came across the following:
Port State Service
21/tcp open ftp
22/tcp open ssh ...

I would say if your network hasn't already been compromised I would be surprised (given the old admin's attitude.)
You may want to start by analyzing the network you just inherited to make SURE...

I am at the office, so am using IE at the moment. At home I use Linux/Firebird.
I get a warning that says "your settings prohibit Active-x ... blah blah" - then the java applet pops up.

Much of the "which is better" question is answered by stating which is your preferred OS?
I use SNORT/Linux, and it performs perfectly. So I can tell you that the nix version runs well.

I will also recommend that you don't get frustrated by the volumes of information once you start reading. It can be very intimidating, due to the mountain of subjects involved in computer security.

It appears the original poster is using Windows? Just to add some Linux information here (for others who would like to know,) in RH9, this can be done by accessing the services file in the /etc...

Nice info Phish -- thank you. It is hard for me to imagine that spammers that hijack your home page, popup adds and flood your mailbox manage to actually sell anything that way. But they must -...

Thanks Jeremy - my question was one of pure curiousity. It appears that the address I scanned IS a single node, and it also appears the same company owns their name servers also (they could be...

Just checked - the IP belongs to an outift called "wholesaleinternet" - how nice ;P
Looks like a SPAM outift to me - so they can deal with their own security issues on that box.
July 21st, 2004, 05:57 PM
Excellent point - I will check a little further and see if that IP is actually owned by the spammers using it. If the IP belongs to a legit company I will let them know.

Loving popup adds as much as I do, and the relentless SPAM that fills my mailbox, for kicks I decided to run a quick nmap on one of the worst offenders.
I thought surely there box would be...

This is the wrong area to enter this question I am sure, so please forgive me. If someone could point me in a direction that would be great.
The idea seemed simple:
1. Use Server on network...

Thanks Dark - I have read man pages etc. until my eyes are crossed.
What you are saying makes sense - my understanding was that by default the MAILTO line in crontab would by default send the...

Just as an addendum, I can use the mail command from the command line and send myself mail with no problem, so I know it is working correctly.
The problem seems to be getting the system to send...

I would like to have CRON send mail to my internet e-mail address.
I am using Redhat9.
The line I have in my /etc/crontab file is:
MAULTO=cmd | mail -s "cron report"...

Thought I would post a small snippet of my firewall log just for everyone to see. It never ceases to amaze me that this is on a home network - the script kiddies are busy.
December 3rd, 2003, 05:06 PM
udp flood - then a sequential port scan. Or they attempted to - all packets were dropped by the firewall. The thing that surprised me is that they made no attempt whatsoever to be quiet about...
December 3rd, 2003, 04:58 PM
Last night it was late, but I read through the firewall log before going to bed.
I see that 2 attempted port scans have happened - one from an isp in Japan and one in France.
It's late, so I...

Personally it does not upset me to know this. All sensitive data is encrypted (or should be,) and any ISP really has to take these steps in the computer world today.
Legally and ethically I...

rpm --upgrade --oldpackage etherape****** worked like a charm.
Thanks a TON. I forced an upgrade earlier, but it did not take. It took the --oldpackage option to get it to go.
December 3rd, 2003, 02:05 AM
I installed etherape 4.2 - installed and ran perfectly.
I decided to upgrade to 5.0 - it didn't run.
I attempt to re-install 4.2 - can't. 5.0 is installed.
I try to remove with...

Thanks Striek - I was thinking the same thing. It seemed a bit of overkill, but I asked in case I was missing some obvious advantages.
I am using the Homeportal 1000, which does NAT and stateful...
