Is there a way of disabling qpe from listening on 4992 and 4244? On my Cacko 1.21b ROM as root:
# netstat -nap --protocol=inet
Proto Recv-Q Send-Q Local Address Foreign Address State PID/Program name
tcp 0 0 0.0.0.0:4992 0.0.0.0:* LISTEN 242/qpe
tcp 0 0 0.0.0.0:4244 0.0.0.0:* LISTEN 242/qpe
Since I do not use this service to sync it would be nice to disable. If I can't disable I guess it could be secured with iptables/ipchains etc. Does QPE recognize hosts.allow? Any ideas?
I realize this is a very old thread, but here's another take on the situation. The sl5500 stock ROMs are continually respawning ttyS0, and if that is where the listening to the ports comes from, stopping the respawning (if you don't need it) should do the trick. I see no such ports when I run netstat, since I have ttyS0 disabled.
I give instructions for disabling ttyS0 at http://www.sdjf.esmartdesign.com/respawn.html
Oops! I didn't enter the arguments for netstat correctly, and see that my Z is listening on 22, 111, 4242, 4243, and 4992 when I am online, and on just 4242, 4243, and 4992 when offline. So there is no 4244, but other ports. And I don't know how to see what tty is associated with what. Hopefully the respawning idea will help, and sorry about messing up on the report about ports.
