Hi was just about to do a scan but got this message below just wanted to know if this was normal ?

There are services enabled by default with your operating system that are not necessary for most web servers. This function will disable the following services: portmap - Used by NFS to map network drives cupsd - Used for printing nfs statd - Used for NFS file system mounting. nis - Network information service gpm - Console mouse services If you see a [FAILED] error message, this means that the service was not running when the scanner tried to shut it down. This is not a problem, the service will still be prevented from automatically starting.

Yes it is normal.

If you have CSF I suggest you go to WHM-> Plugins-> ConfigServer Security&Firewall-> Check Server Security.

Hi only want to do a scan which i have just done and it finished and just said done, but why did you say go to ConfigServer Security&Firewall ?
Because CSF's "Check Server Security" tells you something, instead of just saying "Done".

Hello,

You can check your server security through CSF firewall, Here are the CSF demo link, Please check it

Main CSF plugin interface : ConfigServer Security & Firewall

And click on : "Check Server Security" on your server you will get the full server security report

Check this demo Report page : ConfigServer Security & Firewall

Yes, this is a normal message. It's letting you know which services will be disabled in-case you utilize any of them.

Thank you.
