While trying to connect a linux box to the internet i got a strange
behaviour. The machine first accepts telnet or any other inetd
initiated connection, while a few minutes later doing the same thing
will hang. Thus, trying to telnet into the box yields the
connected to message, but there is no prompt.
This happens with every connection which is handled by inetd,
like ftp, finger, etc...
After a long delay of maybe several hours (maybe only a few minutes)
the machine again accepts connections, but after a short time it hangs
Weirdly, a lpmud driver running permanently listening to port 7680 runs
perfectly, thus i guess the fault has something to do with inetd.
I know about the order hosts, bind problem in /etc/resolv.conf, but this
should not matter, since there is a working nameserver on the local
Anyone had that problem, too and solved it?
