xinetd Time service broken
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:29:15 EDT
The internal time service of xinetd does not work, or if it does,
it is significantly different that previous inetd implementations.
Using rdate to set time from a LAN connection generates 'connection
refused' no matter what. It would seem to be a problem with libwrap ->
[root@junior /tmp]# rdate -s feenix
rdate: couldn't connect to host feenix: Connection refused
Oct 11 04:01:33 localhost xinetd: FAIL: time libwrap
None of the following in /etc/hosts.allow works: ALL : ALL,
ALL : 192.168.10.2, time : ALL, INTERNAL : ALL. ALL : <hostname>.
Nor does moving both hosts.deny and allow out of the way completely.
(Restart xinetd on each test.)
I forgot to say that telnet, wu-ftp, rsh, and rlogin are all
working fine. Config file:
wait = no
user = root
disable = no
socket_type = stream
protocol = tcp
server = INTERNAL
This is fixed in xinetd-18.104.22.168pre11-1.
