python script to exhibit xinetd problem (962 bytes, text/plain)

no flags Details

Description Derek Tattersall 2001-02-01 15:38:12 UTC
I have python scripts that open a udp socket to the echo and daytime
internal xinetd servers, and do 10 replications of the send/redcieve udp
pair.  This works as expected with xinetd-2.1.8.9pre11-1 from RHL 7.0, but
fails with xinetd-2.1.8.9pre14-2 or -3 from RHL 7.1
beta 3.

The failure seems to be going into an eternal wait for a response.

Could you attach that script?

Comment 3 Glen Foster 2001-02-01 19:59:32 UTC
This defect is considered MUST-FIX for Florence Release-Candidate #1

Comment 4 Glen Foster 2001-02-01 20:06:13 UTC
After more investigation, this defect is no longer a MUST-FIX for the Florence
release.

Comment 5 Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2001-02-27 06:09:53 UTC
Problem removed in xinetd-2.1.8.9pre14-6 - xinetd really wants to use same
servicename for the tcp and udp versions. This doesn't match well with our
current tools. Also, I've yet to see the UDP servers being used while the TCP
versions are somewhat used.
