Recurring inetd error message in /var/log/messages


I just noticed a recurring error in my /var/log/messages:

inetd[1147]: netbios=ssn/tcp (2): bind: Address already in use

It shows up every ten minutes, exactly. I can't fiture out what is causing it or how to fix it. Any ideas?

That should have been: "figure out"...

I'm getting the same problem with ssh :

inetd[486]: ssh/tcp: bind: Address already in use

Thought it meant that there is another sshd running, but I can't see any sshd when I do a ps -aux | grep ssh

Have you tried a netstat -a to see if anything is listening on port 22 (ssh) or on ports 137-139 (netbios ports)?

I tried both netstat -l and netstat -a.
I see three netbios's listening: one is -ssn, one is -ns and the third is -dgm. I assume the -ssn is the one being refered to in the log. How does this help?

I think i resolved my problem:
sshd was already running and inetd was trying to start it again.
Commenting out the sshd entry in inetd.conf stops the recurring message.
