Re: [opensuse] cups and init open port 631

Hi all,

I have checked the open ports in my system and I have noted the
following strange thing about port 631:

orodruin:~ # netstat -npa|grep 631
tcp 0 0*
LISTEN 1159/cupsd
tcp 0 0 :::631 :::*
LISTEN 1/init
udp 0 0*

so it seems that for IPv4 TCP cups is listening on localhost but what
about IPv6 or TCP? Why does port 631 belong to init? and how can I
restrict it to listen only on localhost?


"it" (whatever that is) is already restricted to localhost, what else do you think it is connected to?
