I don't understand whats going on with my rootserver...
I have reset iptables and just opened the port for ssh.
Now suddenly over night I see that there are a various of ports open:
21,80, 135, 139, 445, 3128
Could it be that vsftpd for example put rules in automatically to allow input on port 21?
I also tried disabling iptables with this command:
after this i did a port scan with shields up! but still there seem to be rules I can not change. Most ports are still closed and the ones mentioned above are open...
# iptables -X
# iptables -t nat -F
# iptables -t nat -X
# iptables -t mangle -F
# iptables -t mangle -X
# iptables -P INPUT ACCEPT
# iptables -P FORWARD ACCEPT
# iptables -P OUTPUT ACCEPT
I experimented with firestarter and ufw but uninstalled both... could it be that they still control the firewall?
services i have installed on my root server are ftp, openvpn, apache and vnc
