> I looked at /etc/services and.. oh, my God!
/etc/services details the mapping between service names and port
numbers. The presence of an entry in /etc/services doesn't mean that
you're actually running the corresponding daemon.
To determine what is actually being run, use "netstat -a". To disable
services that you don't want, comment out the corresponding entry in
/etc/inetd.conf. If the service isn't listed there (sendmail, httpd,
NFS etc won't be), then it's a standalone daemon which is being run

Anything that you don't want.
