Angry inetd doesnt start vsftpd suse


how come my installation of suse 8.2 is so f'd up?
none of the stuff that i have found even applys it seems

i cannot rcinetd restart
cause it says "rcinetd" command not found

i cant kill -HUP cause when i ps-x inetd is nowhere on the list

every thing i find in google is some poorly written post from a mesage board that makes no sense

if i type vsftpd it tells me i cant start it as a standalone and it must be started from inetd.

i can restart xinetd but that doesnt do anything to start vsftpd

i even restart linux and its still not starting...

anyone have any advice?

To restart xinetd - try:
/etc/init.d/xinetd restart

If you want to run vsftpd in standalone mode try adding this to vsftpd.conf:
Code:
listen=YES
tcp_wrappers=YES

Do you have any rules blocking port 21:
iptables -L

You don't get any rules in between?

Can you connect from localhost - ie on the server itself:
ftp 127.0.01

What machine are you trying from another on your LAN?

Also check the contents of:
/etc/host.allow
/etc/host.deny

well when i try to do

# ftp 127.0.0.1
it returns, same as when i try to connect from other machines on the lan.

"ftp: connect : connection refused

when i check

vi hosts.allow
every line in the document is commented with the "#" sign

when i check
vi hosts.deny

the one line that is not commented is
http-rman: ALL EXCEPT LOCAL

sounds like it is denying anything outside... the local. but it also denys the localhost too ... hmm. if i comment that out
then restart xinetd...

are those 2 things even related?
how do i restart vsftpd?

What program are you using as your client?

Is it another machine on your lan?
