I am also seeing this problem.

Comment 2 Zenon Mousmoulas 2002-12-04 00:35:41 UTC
Yep it's true, xinetd-2.3.7-4.7x completely ignores services with redirect 
statements! They don't even appear in debug output (running xinetd -d).

The redirect facility in xinetd is full of problems. There have been and there 
still are problems with xinetd being unable to reload config properly and 
being unable to re-enable services after they are temp. disabled and so on. 
It's a whole mess. Please see bugs #60049 and #76727.

Comment 3 Zenon Mousmoulas 2002-12-04 01:45:24 UTC
I tried 2.3.7-5 from RHL 8.0 errata (rebuilt it for 7.3 from SRPMS), no luck. 
Still the same.
Then I tried a build using the plain 2.3.9 sources. I really have no clue as 
to what evil things this version can do, but at least redirect works with it, 
or so it seems for the time being.

Comment 5 Jefferson Ogata 2003-04-02 21:06:06 UTC
This is basic functionality for xinetd. You've issued two updates to xinetd on
7.3 and they've both been broken. How about fixing this?


Comment 6 Alessandro Polverini 2003-04-14 15:56:55 UTC
I also verified this bug, redirect does not work.
I tried the same configuration on a redhat 9 box and the redirect works well.

What about a fix, I find this bug really annoying.

Thanks, Alex
