Are these active services in the system normal, can I disable them without giving a problem?

PORT STATE SERVICE 111 / tcp open rpcbind 631 / tcp open ipp

port 631 is cups, printer service and should be open on localhost and on the network if you share a printer. Port 111 is used on NFS (Network File System) should be close unless you share part of your disk on the network.

Port 111 is the rpcbind service and is required for running an nfs service. To stop the service:

systemctl disable rpcbind.service
systemctl disable rpcbind.socket
systemctl stop rpcbind.service
systemctl stop rpcbind.socket

If you don't need the service, there is no point in running it.

From command line:

firewall-cmd --list-ports shows all open ports (or you can scan your host using nmap localhost)

firewall-cmd --remove-port=111 will "close" port 111. Be aware, your NFS will not work afterwards.

If you need a GUI tool, install and use firewall-config.

You meant 111 rather than 110 ?

Sure, I meant 111, not 110 (I'll edit my post). And of course, your answer is the better one. If one doesn't use the service, it can be disabled completely, not just closing the port, though that was what the person asked.
