I use the service daytime in my private lan with an linux-box as a time
server trugh inetd (internal service daytime - port 13) the definition in
/etc/services is right and the definition in /etc/inetd.conf too, but with
the inetd of inetd-0.16-4.i386.rpm don't work; the same configuration with
the inetd of the netkit-base-0.10-37.i386.rpm works fine. I can send my
files if you wish. Regards
0.16-4 works for me just fine.
The entry should be:
daytime stream tcp nowait root internal
Make sure you're not mistaking about UDP/TCP.
[root@lokki /root]# telnet localhost daytime
Connected to localhost.localdomain.
Escape character is '^]'.

Actually, this is caused by a small bug in inetd. It affects both daytime and
time tcp servers.
Inetd has been replaced with xinetd in Rawhide so this is kinda moot point, but
here's a patch (based on #10786) if you're interested.
