Description Brian J. Conway 2000-09-03 18:15:05 EDT
Despite the message printed out at startup,
Sep  3 17:51:08 ladyluck xinetd[22847]: xinetd Version started
Sep  3 17:51:08 ladyluck xinetd[22847]: libwrap 
Sep  3 17:51:08 ladyluck xinetd[22847]: options compiled in.
Sep  3 17:51:08 ladyluck xinetd[22847]: Started working: 1 available
Sep  3 17:51:11 ladyluck xinetd: xinetd startup succeeded

/etc/hosts.allow and deny have no effect on the processes spawned out of
xinetd by default as inetd has in the past.  This is something that should
be looked into, as none of the available documentation easily shows how to
use tcp wrappers with xinetd, and it really needs to be there.
Comment 1 Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2000-09-03 19:01:35 EDT
The correct usage with the beta is servicename ("telnet") instead of servername
(i"n.telnetd"). This has since been changed anyway, both in our trees and in
xined itself - it now uses the old behaviour (though I admit to much preferring
the new one)
