|Hi folks !
|
|How can I close pgsql port to the outside ? I am accessing pg-databases only 
|from (the local net and) the server itself via coldfusion so the port does 
|not have to be visible to eth0 ?
|
|How can I do this ? Is there a start option for this ? I vaguely remember 
|having seen something about it somewhere but could not find in docs.
|
|Any hint or insight / explanation into this would be greatly appreciated.
|
|Thanks in advance,
|
|aarni

|I am running RH 7.1 and PG 7.0

since you are running redhat you could use the firewalling software to
block external access to that port using iptables i believe.
