Hi

This seems to be okay for now.. Just make sure, that You have upgraded to
latest version of ipchains, so all known security holes are blocked.

Also comment out all unneccessary services in /etc/inetd.conf out (like telnet
etc..), and restart inetd daemon "kill -HUP <inetd-daemon pid number>"

Jaska.
