What is inetd and xinetd?


I stumbled across a great site that explains how to setup vsFTPd but it's dependent on which one of those two I'm running. I'm using FC6 but since I'm a noob I have no idea what it's asking me. Can someone please explain?

No one forced you to respond to my post, Nomb. If you're not willing to help noobs like myself then continue serving people coffee.

Since your just starting out, you are going to get confused a lot. I'm just trying to get you into the habbit of searching certian places so you don't waste time looking on other sites that will just make things worse for you.

To find out what you have installed. Go to:

System -> Administration -> Server Settings (if you have servers installed) -> Services

If you then click on 'On Demand Services' and you actually see services listed then you have xinetd. If it says something about needing to be installed then you don't. Also, these work too:

'# rpm -qa | grep xinetd'
'# rpm -qa | grep inetd'

Also you can do a 'yum remove' or 'yum list' or 'yum search' and looked for 'installed' next to the package.

Ordinary12: nombís comments were very to the point and your response was childish and rude, as is cross-posting.

If you cannot accept the help that is offered, then donít ask for it.

And since you donít seem to be inclined to research items on your own, then you should get used to hearing this a lot: RTFM

Who are you again? The comments made between Nomb and myself are exactly that...comments between him and myself. You may be a senior member on this site but you will not speak to me in a demeaning fashion with out a stern rebuttal. As far as I'm concerned this conversation was over hours ago but if you feel that strongly about it please avoid my future posts. :GTH
