Description wayne.e.fordyce 2000-01-12 12:22:56 EST
While accessing my Linux PC over ethernet from a Solaris x86 box via rsh
and rcp commands, after 10 to 20 such commands the Linux host stops
responding.  Looking in /var/log/messages I see an entry like this:

inetd[PID]: rsh/tcp server failing (looping), service terminated.
Comment 1 Jeff Johnson 2000-01-12 17:08:59 EST
If the commands are successful, then this is a problem with the number of
connections per second. Inetd turns off services that are spawning
"too fast". The fix is to add a rate parameter in inetd.conf.

Something like
    shell   stream  tcp     nowait.256  root    /usr/sbin/tcpd  in.rshd
should fix. Please reopen this bug if not.
