Solaris 8 to many open port

hi all,

My OS is solaris 8 with core system installation only. so far everything works fine. by i do some testing from my xp pc as client to nmap and scan opening port to my solaris. the result as below:

Initiating SYN Stealth Scan against [1672 ports] at 16:25
Discovered open port 21/tcp on
Discovered open port 23/tcp on
Discovered open port 22/tcp on
Discovered open port 540/tcp on
Discovered open port 32771/tcp on
Discovered open port 79/tcp on
Discovered open port 13/tcp on
Discovered open port 7/tcp on
Discovered open port 32777/tcp on
Discovered open port 513/tcp on
Discovered open port 32778/tcp on
Discovered open port 111/tcp on
Discovered open port 32779/tcp on
Discovered open port 514/tcp on
Discovered open port 37/tcp on
Discovered open port 4045/tcp on
Discovered open port 32780/tcp on
Discovered open port 515/tcp on
Discovered open port 9/tcp on
Discovered open port 512/tcp on
Discovered open port 19/tcp on
Discovered open port 7100/tcp on
The SYN Stealth Scan took 3.84s to scan 1672 total ports.
For OSScan assuming port 7 is open, 1 is closed, and neither are firewalled
Host appears to be up ... good.
Interesting ports on
(The 1650 ports scanned but not shown below are in state: closed)
7/tcp open echo
9/tcp open discard
13/tcp open daytime
19/tcp open chargen
21/tcp open ftp
22/tcp open ssh
23/tcp open telnet
37/tcp open time
79/tcp open finger
111/tcp open rpcbind
512/tcp open exec
513/tcp open login
514/tcp open shell
515/tcp open printer
540/tcp open uucp
4045/tcp open lockd
7100/tcp open font-service
32771/tcp open sometimes-rpc5
32777/tcp open sometimes-rpc17
32778/tcp open sometimes-rpc19
32779/tcp open sometimes-rpc21
32780/tcp open sometimes-rpc23

Question: What is the best way to prevent this?...I only open for ssh and ftp only. What kinda firewall solaris mostly use?
