    Hell all,

    I am trying to find how I can disable completely pop3s and imaps. Anyone with an idea how to do that?
    I disable the services via WHM, on xinetd as well but these services are still running..... :mad:
    Here is a nmap output:

    Port State Service
    1/tcp open tcpmux
    22/tcp open ssh
    26/tcp open unknown
    53/tcp open domain
    111/tcp open sunrpc
    953/tcp open rndc
    993/tcp open imaps
    995/tcp open pop3s
    10000/tcp open snet-sensor-mgmt

    Any help is much appretiate.

    Use "chkconfig --list" at the root prompt. Doing "chkconfig --help" will tell you what parameters are available for turning on/off services.

    Hi,


    xinetd based services:
    pop-3: off
    ntalk: on
    talk: on
    telnet: on
    cpimap: off


    As far as I seen pop and imap are both disable but both are up and running:

    Port State Service
    1/tcp open tcpmux
    22/tcp open ssh
    26/tcp open unknown
    53/tcp open domain
    111/tcp open sunrpc
    953/tcp open rndc
    993/tcp open imaps
    995/tcp open pop3s
    10000/tcp open snet-sensor-mgmt

    Any other ideas?

    Go on, have a guess
    They're stunnels that are run up when cPanel starts. You can modify a couple of files to disable them, but it's not really worth it as the next upcp update will overwrite them. I'd suggest simply blocking the ports inbound using iptables.
