Possible Superfluous Services

Some services are unnecessary and present performance and security issues. Turn these off if not being used:

NFS: portmap, rpc.mountd, rpc.nfsd

Samba: nmbd, smbd

DNS: named (not needed if only resolving)

Others: lpd, telnet, rlogin, rexec, finger, chargen, echo, comsat, identd, ftp
Remove from /etc/inetd.conf and/or /etc/rc.d/* files
