Security ....

A friend mentioned that, on his Solaris 7 system, he noticed an open link 
from an arbitrary ip address to his lp daemon. Perhaps a security breach? He 
uses his Solaris 7 box as a gateway to the net (soon to be replaced by a 
Linux box).

I was wondering how easy it is, given some ip address, to get information 
about it.

Thanks in advance
