My Goal is to temporarly lock up a new installation of ReHat.
The system is on an internet PUBLIC IP .. (scary..)
For now all I want is full access from one station in my lan.
Lets say this stations IP is 188.8.131.52.
hosts.allow has the following entry..
hosts.deny has the following entry..
When executing " nmap -sT -O localhost "
Below are the only ports open...
Starting nmap V. 3.00 ( www.insecure.org/nmap/ )
Interesting ports on lindo (127.0.0.1):
(The 1598 ports scanned but not shown below are in state: closed)
Port State Service
21/tcp open ftp
22/tcp open ssh
111/tcp open sunrpc
Remote OS guesses: Linux Kernel 2.4.0 - 2.5.20, Linux 2.5.25 or Gentoo 1.2
Linux 2.4.19 rc1-rc7)
Now I know from the 123... station I do have full access.
Is this station really save from the outside world.
To my knowledge all services from the outside should be stopped via
Am I safe???
