Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 21932
xinetd re-enables disabled services.
Last modified: 2007-03-26 23:38:10 EDT
I upgraded my system from 6.2 to 7.0. The only services that I had enabled
in inetd.conf was time (I am not sure why). When I upgraded, I ended up
I was able to finger my machine and login via telnet and rlogin. I tried
rsh and it gave me "Permission denied". I didn't try anything else.
The install shouldn't enable services that were previously disabled.
Assigning to xinetd owner.
xinetd doesn't touch this... the reason they are enabled is because they shipped
with configuration files which turn them on. This has been fixed in our trees,
as they are now off by default.
