First, this is off topic in c.u.p. Second it depends on the flavor or
UNIX or Linux or whatever you have running.
Generally speaking you want to modify inetd.conf or xinted.conf on
Linux. See the inetd.conf and inetd manpages (xinetd on Linux). You
OS might have an administrative tool to use for this. For example on
AIX it's best to use smit (I think that's what it's called.).
If this doesn't provide you with enough information I suggest you ask
in either comp.unix.admin or better a forum specific to the OS/Vendor
you are dealing with.
