xdm-shadow listens to some port

Post by D. Charalambou » Sun, 19 Jul 1998 04:00:00


It seems that xdm-shadow listens to some random port and the same applies for all processes started under xdm-shadow. Does anybody know whether this is a security problem? Is there any way to avoid it?

Currently, no other host can access the display or get a login window (/etc/X11/xdm/Xaccess).

Many thanks in advance.



1. apache listen to port 80, another standalone apache+modssl listen port 443, not working..?!


I have setup a 'main' apache which listen to port 80.
And setup another copy of apache+modssl listen to port 443, this
apache+modssl failed to start .?!

Error message: "/bin/apachectl start: httpd (pid 76190) already

Error saying that the 'main' apache is running so this apache+modssl
cannot be started..?

Any idea?
