obscure port 873

Post by Fabien Wernl » Thu, 31 May 2001 18:18:50



Hi!

I have a Suse Linux 7.0 on a K6 350MHz

Although nothing seems to be run in rc.d nor in inetd, my port 873 is
open.How can I know what it is, and how can I kill the service?

I checked in /etc/services, but the executables of rsync are no on my
system

Please help!

greetings...

If you have a open 873 port, then you must have the rsync daemon running
somewhere on your system, because port 873 is used for rsync operations.
There should be a file somewhere on your system like /etc/inetd.conf or
somewhere in the /etc/xinetd.d directory where the rsync line will appear.

The daemon should be running somewhere.  A connection to the localport should
be able to tell you whether or not it is running.

telnet localhost 873

See ya

1. Token Ring support -- ODS 873?

Are there drivers for an ODS Token Ring Adapter for Linux
out there?

I've been trying to get dosemu to use the DOS drivers for
this card, to no avail...

I've given dosemu access to the correct ports, and the driver
loads fine, but when my applications start to access the
card, they die...

This leads me to suspect that I'm not going to get the driver
working under dosemu...So, if a Linux driver exists already, this
would help me greatly...

Thanks,
Dan
