#319 closed System Defect (fixed)

Disable some listening ports

Reported by: lme Owned by:
Priority: major Milestone:
Component: System Configuration Version: 8.1-RC1
Keywords: Cc: trac-bugs@…


By default syslog, ntpd and Xorg listen for remote connections. This is unneccessary for a desktop system and could cause security problems.
To close the listening ports do the following.

syslogd_flags="-ss" in rc.conf

ServerArgsLocal?="-nolisten tcp" in /usr/local/kde4/kdm/kdmrc

sync with FreeBSD's stock ntp.conf which was added some time ago and add
restrict ::1
