Parallels H-Sphere Control Panel can not pass PCI (payment card industry) scan because off the following Security warning found on port/service "mdns (5353/udp)":
"mDNS Detection"


Filter incoming traffic to UDP port 5353 if desired.

# netstat -anp|grep 5353
udp        0      0      *           2013/avahi-daemon:
udp        0      0 :::5353                     :::*          2013/avahi-daemon:

avahi is the daemon which runs on client machines to perform Zeroconf service discovery on a network.

Parallels H-Sphere do not requires the service to be run, so it is  required to completely disable it.

The following tools used to disable services:

# service avahi-daemon stop
# chkconfig avahi-daemon off
# chkconfig --del avahi-daemon
