xinetd uses service --> slackware uses ???
I am running through the howto for setting up a secure relaying e-mail server. They talk about setting services in xinetd. I know for slackware we have inetd. I tried setting up a couple fo scripts:
they talk about setting up a script /etc/xinetd.d/pop3s so I tried setting up a script called /etc/rc.d/rc.pop3s.
Here are the contents of the script:
disable = no
socket_type = stream
wait = no
user = root
server = /usr/sbin/stunnel
server_args = -v3 -l/usr/sbin/ipop3d
log_on_success += HOST DURATION
log_on_failure += HOST
The problem was when I tried to run pop3s it failed with the messages:
./rc.pop3s: line 1: service: command not found
disable: Unable to connect to server: Connection refused
./rc.pop3s: line 4: socket_type: command not found
./rc.pop3s: line 5: wait: `=': not a pid or valid job spec
./rc.pop3s: line 5: wait: `no': not a pid or valid job spec
./rc.pop3s: line 6: user: command not found
./rc.pop3s: line 7: server: command not found
./rc.pop3s: line 8: server_args: command not found
./rc.pop3s: line 9: log_on_success: command not found
./rc.pop3s: line 10: log_on_failure: command not found
The documentation does not say anything about "service" being distro specific, but I am betting that it is, so I am trying to figure out how to set up the "service" under slackware.
Make sense? Any Suggestion?
