Thep,

RH7 doesn't use inetd anymore. Each of the processes listed in inetd.conf is now found in the subdirectory /etc/xinetd.d

Each process is then listed as a separate file in the /etc/xinetd.d directory.

HTH.

IMAP question

Hi.

I am using RH7.1. My imap file in /etc/xinet.d is setup, however when I try to connect to IMAP, xinetd doesn't not seem to start the daemon and I get a conntection refused. Does anyone have any ideas?

Thank you very much!
Peter.

You can always work around xinitd problems by running the daemon all the time! Just start it from the command line, then put it in your startup scripts too. If you're expecting a reasonable number of connections to it then this will be more efficient than having start and stop all the time.

Cheers

IMAP

Hi Jamie..

I thought inetd listened for connections for given ports and then started the appropriate daemon for that port (In the case of IMAP 143) and then send the request over to it. I guess what I'm asking is that I thought IMAP didn't fully listen on a port but was summonded by inetd?

In any case tho, I did try starting the IMAP daemon manually and still had the same problem (connection refused).

Oh by the way.. I have also tryied running 'telnet localhost 143' to even see if anything was listening on that port and still nothing. I also did a netstat -a | grep 143 and didn't see anything listening either... ther should be someone listening shouldn't there??

Thanks,
Peter.

Yeah, thats right... I was just trying to say that you don't have to use inetd to start the daemon, and that in some situations you might not want to.

So you start the daemon by hand - does it start correctly? (ps -ef | more and look for the daemon [also when you tried by hand did you make sure that inetd wasn't also still trying to start it?]) Have you got any firewalling setup with either iptables or ipchains?

And you fail to get the connection to the server at all? Its not user authentication that fails?

cheers

Hi Jamie,

When I ran the daemon by hand, this is what I get:

* OK [CAPABILITY IMAP4 IMAP4REV1 STARTTLS LOGIN-REFERRALS AUTH=LOGIN] carpathia IMAP4rev1 2000.283rh at Thu, 28 Jun 2001 18:33:06 -0400 (EDT)


I do have a firewall up but I have this line in my rc.firewall file:

/sbin/ipchains -A input -p tcp -j ACCEPT -s 0.0.0.0/0 -d 0.0.0.0/0 143

does this open port 143?

then when I try to even do telnet loclhost 143 I get this:

Trying 127.0.0.1...
telnet: Unable to connect to remote host: Connection refused

Thanks for all your help!!
Peter.
