Many thanks for that info Steve.

Follow up:

clean install has happened. nmap showed once again  an open port that I did
not expect:

(The 1660 ports scanned but not shown below are in state: closed)
25/tcp        open       smtp
631/tcp      open       ipp
32770/tcp  open       sometimes-rpc3

Nmap finished: 1 IP address (1 host up) scanned in 0.296 seconds

This is despite having configured Bastille, and shutting down services as
far as reasonable. I wonder if there is not a residual backdoor being left
open? Any ideas on this? (BTW scanning other addresses shows no open ports
or unexpected services)

Best wishes
