    Hi guys when running the security check on my server most of them fail except one:

    Code:
    Note: You may see [FAILED] results below; These are normal as this means the service(s) were already shutdown.
    
    Stopping portmap: [FAILED]
    Stopping atd: [FAILED]
    Stopping cups: [FAILED]
    Shutting down console mouse services: [FAILED]
    Shutting down xfs: [  OK  ]
    Shutting down NIS services: [FAILED]
    Stopping NFS statd: [FAILED]
    Does xfs cause a problem in it's current form?

    Thanks

    Go on, have a guess
    If you're not running anything that needs xfs then you should indeed stop it as it opens ports accessible from the internet (unless you block them in a local firewall).

    HI chirpy,

    Sorry to sound total noob but what uses xfs.

    Also how would I go about closing it down.

    Thanks for your time

    x font service you can close it in servers
    you can look running servers like chkconfig --list | grep on
    and if you want to stıop them
    service blabla stop and
    chkconfig blabla off
