Re: Locking down RedHat

The short answer is only run the processes that you need.  There will be
a difference in necessary processes between enterprises and even between
servers within an enterprise.  As an example here is a part of my
kickstart file.

chkconfig --level 0123456 lpd off
chkconfig --level 0123456 netfs off
chkconfig --level 0123456 isdn off
chkconfig --level 0123456 wu-ftpd off
chkconfig --level 2345 sendmail on
chkconfig --level 2345 ntpd on
chkconfig --level 0123456 wine off
chkconfig --level 0123456 named off

You can see, I don't print from this server, so I shutdown lpd.  Think
about what you use, and shutdown that which you don't. xinetd may be one
to consider.
