Description Robert de Bock 2003-01-31 08:12:33 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Opera/6.11 (Linux 2.4.18-10 i686; U)  [en]

Description of problem:
Redirects worked in version 2.3.4-0.8 of xinetd, but stopped working since version 2..7-4.7x (up2date).
The configuration used is the same, just the software changed. Here is a sample configuration:
service smtp
        flags           = REUSE
        socket_type     = stream        
        wait            = no
        log_on_failure  += USERID
        disable         = no
        user            = root
        redirect        = 25
Here is a small piece of log:
Jan 31 08:21:55 gw xinetd[3078]: xinetd Version 2.3.7 started with libwrap options compiled in.
Jan 31 08:21:55 gw xinetd[3078]: Started working: 0 available services
Jan 31 08:21:58 gw xinetd: xinetd startup succeeded

As a workaround you could setup ssh to do port-redirection.

Someone already found this identical problem:

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. install the new version of xinetd, using up2date or whatever tool.
2. restart xinetd and watch your logs or test the redirects.

Actual Results:  xinetd stopped redirecting.

Expected Results:  xinetd should redirect.
