Description of problem:
After upgrading "xinetd" on RH 7.3 system to version 2.3.11 
I've problems with the former working service "time-dgram".

In /var/log/messages these messages show up

xinetd[3617]: libwrap refused connection to time-dgram from
May 16 13:45:52 mailbox xinetd[3617]: FAIL: time-dgram libwrap

The - unchanged - file /etc/hosts/allow contains
time-dgram: ALL

File /etc/xinetd.d/time-udp contains
service time
        type            = INTERNAL UNLISTED
        id              = time-dgram
        socket_type     = dgram
        protocol        = udp
        user            = root
        wait            = yes
        disable         = no
        port            = 37

Where ist the problem ?

Kind regards, Frank Elsner

It looks like xinetd changed how it chooses the service name to look up in 
/etc/hosts.{deny,allow}, and I didn't notice when I was building the errata 
packages.  Instead of looking for "time-dgram" in /etc/hosts.allow, it's now 
looking for "time". 
I've just built xinetd-2.3.12-1.10.0 in Raw Hide.  It includes a 
slightly-post-2.3.12 patch that a) defines in the documentation how xinetd 
chooses the service name to look up in /etc/hosts.{deny,allow} and b) allows 
you to override the default with an explicit "libwrap" paramater. 
The Raw Hide binary probably won't work on a Red Hat Linux 7.3 system, but you 
can certainly download the SRPM and rpmbuild --rebuild it. 
Does this fix the problem for you?

Red Hat Linux and Red Hat Powertools are currently no longer supported by Red
Hat, Inc. In an effort to clean up bugzilla, we are closing all bugs in MODIFIED
state for these products.

However, we do want to make sure that nothing important slips through the
cracks. If, in fact, these issues are not resolved in a current Fedora Core
Release (such as Fedora Core 5), please open a new issues stating so. Thanks.
