LinuxShield - nailswebd can this be disabled

Hi all,

I'm new to LinuxShiled - due to security regs we need to close remote access to port 55443 (nailswebd). I was wondering if we can disable the use of nailswebd (or at least add an entry in iptables to prevent remote access to port 55443) so that port scanners cannot see it. What would the effects of disabling nailswebd be... ie will it stop McAfee running completely or merely disable access to the web browser.. if it disables access to the web gui could we enable nailswebd on an needs only basis.

Thanks in advance
