I guess this the question: on such a mobile system what do I really run
that needs listens on sockets?
named? listens on 127.0.0.1 only.
apache? I use it for local stuff, (e.g. testing) only.
What else is there that I care about? Even if I ran inetd (which I don't)
it listens to 0.0.0.0. I don't expect any connections to stay up when I
change my IP address.
