Description of problem:
The Appendix C to the Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4: Security Guide documentation mislabels port 115 as "Secure File Transfer Protocol (SFTP) services".  Port 115 is actually used by Simple FTP.  Secure FTP (sftp) uses port 22, since it works through ssh.  Please fix this, since it may cause people to leave a port open that they don't need open. 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Look at the line for port 115 in the file in the URL above.

Thank you for reporting this error. You are correct: Port 115 is reserved for
Simple FTP (rfc913). We will create a documentation errata for this issue
and correct it for future versions of the Red Hat Enterprise Linux Security Guide.

Thank you again for your report.
