I can see using nc(netcat) command that port 53 and 67,68 are open on my solaris system. I am not running DHCP and DNS server, is there a way to close this port for any further communication, so that client would get reject message when they try to connect to this port. Thanks!

use lsof to find what processes are using these ports and then stop them

If you are running Solaris, then port 53, 67 and 68 are priv ports and can only be bound by system processes. Since they are all below 512, the OS also will not use them as RCP and RLOGIN ports, so it would appear that you are running DNS and DHCP.

Try this as root:

cd /proc
pfiles * > /tmp/allfiles

Then look in the /tmp/allfiles file for 'port 53', 'port 67' and 'port 68' That will tell you which processes are using those ports.

Yes, Solaris 10 comes with IPfilters installed. To configure them, see this doc:
