That's normally just used for txfrs etc.
The crond daemon is normally started a boot as part of the boot process. Its always running on a normal system.
When I do ps -ef | fgrep crond I get this:
root 1851 1831 0 22:20 ttyp0 00:00:00 fgrep crond
when I do crond and ps -ef | fgrep crond I get this
root 1855 1 0 22:23 ? 00:00:00 crond
root 1857 1831 0 22:23 ttyp0 00:00:00 fgrep crond
Also, when I run crond it will run a cron file that I have saved to my /etc/cron.d
Any ideas? Why isn't crond running by itself without me telling it with a "crond" at the root?
I do have a /etc/rc.d/crond file that is run from the rc.conf file at startup... I'll post that script tomorrow when I get some more time.
