    Why don't you use a firewall instead? It will help protect your computer alot more than changing your finger print.

    either that, or set up portsentry. You can configure it to listen on all ports that aren't used by your standard services. That way, when someone tries to connect to port 20/21/25/etc when you aren't using them, it will just drop the route.

    This is a standard part of RH 7.2.

    Best,
