Hello

I have a linux web server running OSCOMMERCE. We are looking at tightening up on security by closing off unnecessary ports. Can anyone one advise what we need open as minimum for a web server to run. Can we safely shut off all of the other ports?

Any suggestions are appreciated.

Thanking you in advance
