Re: network question
- I just wanted to point out that I have read somewhere that either
inetd or xinetd may be used, but not both. So if you choose xinetd,
you may want to verify that you aren't already using inetd (correct
me if I am wrong on this).
I'm using SuSE and it comes preconfigured with inetd. The default
installation (probably for security reasons) doesn't start telnet,
ftp, and httpd services upon bootup. I may manually start them after
bootup, or configure bootup parameters to start these services.
