Hey everybody, i'm still new to linux (actually i just got slackware up last weekend) and i was wondering if it is possible to manually close ports? and if so how do i do this?

first of all, edit your /etc/services
and comemnt all the ports you don't need..
add a # in front of the port's line...
for instance... hope this helps..

From the command line in RedHat, you can run the command "ntsysv" and turn off services that you don't need. If you know the ports that are used, this is a very handy way to do it.
