troubles with inetd / inetd.conf

troubles with inetd / inetd.conf

Post by Fabri » Sat, 30 Jun 2001 17:35:29

I use Solaris 7 on a sun sparc E450.

[ just in case : I don't have any DNS problem]

There is only one "useful" line in /etc/inetd.conf :

Quote:>grep -v ^# /etc/inetd.conf | wc -l
>ftp stream tcp nowait root /usr/sbin/in.ftpd in.ftpd

And when I try to connect by ftp, I only have :

Quote:>ftp localhost

Connected to localhost.

... and nothing else
When I enable another service (telnetd, netstat or even echo) and
sighup inetd, both services are available.

I have tried to enable only netstat or only echo, but it just hangs
(of course with netstat AND echo in inetd.conf, it works).

Does something go wrong with inetd and a "just one line" inetd.conf,
or am I too tired and it's time for me to go on holidays ?



1. /etc/inetd.conf, /etc/xinetd.conf

Hi, folks!

I'm a Linux newbie, RH7, and I can't seem to "locate" or "find" the files,
inetd.conf and xinetd.conf on my system, and I can't find them running in
(using ps auxw | grep inetd). Is it possible that they are not installed?
(i'm logged in as 'root' while doing the searching).

Any help would be GREATLY appreciated! Thanks!
