 By default syslog, ntpd and Xorg listen for remote connections. This is
 unneccessary for a desktop system and could cause security problems.
 To close the listening ports do the following.

 syslogd_flags="-ss"  in rc.conf

 ServerArgsLocal="-nolisten tcp" in /usr/local/kde4/kdm/kdmrc

 sync with FreeBSD's stock ntp.conf which was added some time ago and add
 restrict ::1
