Description jochen.schmid 2000-01-19 09:55:23 EST
We are running wu-ftpd-2.6.0-1 on our ftp-Server. If we get a lot of
simultanious requests, inetd stop listening to the ftp service(
no "LISTEN" entry for ftp in the output of netstat -a command). About 10
mintutes later inetd starts again listening to ftp service.
Comment 1 Jeff Johnson 2000-01-19 10:07:59 EST
Add a max. rate to the ftp entry in /etc/inetd.conf:
	ftp stream tcp     nowait.NNN  root    /usr/sbin/tcpd  in.ftpd -l -a

where NNN is something like 100.

See "man inetd.conf" for details.
