Xinetd vs. Inetd


I am just wondering what the differences are between xinetd and inetd... specifically the differences in running them.

For example, my gentoo system uses xinetd, but the samba howto has instructions for running the service using inetd. What changes do I have to make to get samba to work for me?

As far as I know it uses the same format as if you were editing the inetd.conf file.

Oh found this, read this page, it mentions how to get it going with the xinetd: http://samba.linuxbe.org/en/samba/in...nstalling.html

When I posted this I didn't realize that you could start services manually with /etc/init.d/samba start , but i think that's what I'll do, because that's enough for my purposes. Thanks for the help.
