I recently did a port scan on a server I've been working on and I found that these ports were open:

25/tcp open smtp
80/tcp open http
105/tcp open csnet-ns
106/tcp open pop3pw
110/tcp open pop3
135/tcp open msrpc
139/tcp open netbios-ssn
143/tcp open imap
445/tcp open microsoft-ds
1024/tcp open kdm
1025/tcp open NFS-or-IIS
1026/tcp open LSA-or-nterm
1027/tcp open IIS
3306/tcp open mysql
3389/tcp open ms-term-serv
6667/tcp filtered irc
8080/tcp open http-proxy

1. Most of these ports should be closed as this is clearly a security risk, what's the best way to close these ports, without locking myself out of Remote Desktop Connection(RDP)?

2.The standard firewall on the server is disabled, if I enabled it will it lock me out of RDP?

3. If I disable netbios, will this lock me out of RDP?

4. As you've probably gathered I'm quite concerned with locking myself out of RDP, what has to be disabled in-order to be locked out of RDP?

Any information, tips and advice would be much appreciated.
