2.8 Only enable CDE-related daemons if absolutely necessary - Uncomment service 100083 in /etc/inet/inetd.conf


The rpc.ttdbserverd process supports many tools and applications in Sun's CDE windowing environment, but has historically been a major security issue for Solaris systems. If you do plan to leave this service enabled, not only is it vital to keep up to date on vendor patches, but also never enable this service on any system which is not well protected by a complete network security infrastructure (including network and host-based firewalls, packet filters, and intrusion detection infrastructure).
