Unhappy System Log error: xinetd -Transport endpoint is not connected


I got the following the following errors in my freshly-installed RH8 system, I can't make any sense of them
xinetd[960]: warning: can't get client address: Transport endpoint is not connected
xinetd[904]: warning: can't get client address: Transport endpoint is not connected
xinetd[893]: warning: can't get client address: Transport endpoint is not connected
I custom installed RH with NO web-servers and with Sendmail and Postfix as my MTAs. No other software has been installed.

I would appreciate any guidance / tips to help me understand these errors.

Thanks and Regards

Ok one way to track it down is to.......

Disable all of the xinetd processes and then turn them all back on one at a time and see who is causing the problem.

You might want to take a look at webmin just to make this a bit easier.

Set wait = no

The problem is the wait = yes option. For TCP connections xinetd seems to try and pass sockets around, instead of starting the server and redirecting STDIN/STDOUT.

Set wait = no for TCP streams. This is what I did to fix this exact same problem I was having. Below is my final configuration in /etc/xinetd.d/myservice:

service mycustomservice
        disable         = no
        type            = UNLISTED
        server          = /home/askmemyname/
        id              = mycustomservice-stream
        socket_type     = stream
        protocol        = tcp
        user            = root
        wait            = no
        port            = 12345
