public

[root@localhost ~]# grep -F '0.0.0.0/0.0.0.0' /etc/httpd/admin-conf/httpd.conf 
       Allow from 127.0.0.1 192.168.5.0/255.255.255.0 0.0.0.0/0.0.0.0

[root@localhost ~]# grep ^sshd /etc/hosts.allow 
sshd    :    ALL

[root@localhost ~]# grep 22 /etc/sysconfig/iptables
-A INPUT -m state --state NEW -m tcp -p tcp --dport 22 -j ACCEPT

[root@localhost ~]# grep 980 /etc/sysconfig/iptables
-A INPUT -m state --state NEW -m tcp -p tcp --dport 980 -j ACCEPT

[root@localhost ~]# netstat -lanp | grep httpd-admin
