Is it easier to use telnetd without inetd?


I want to set up a telnet server on my redhat box. The standard way looks to be by running inetd and having it run telnetd on demand. I don't use inetd and don't have it installed, though. Would it be easy enough to install telnetd without inetd and configure it to run without inetd? Or is inetd necessary for proper operation?

telnet is run via inetd or xinetd, it's not designed to be run as a standalone service. you really should aready have xinetd

What's the difference between inetd and xinetd. Xinetd is the x version? Why on earth would you run that kind of server from X?

no, xinetd is just a better version. nothign to do with x. there's loads things that start with x that are xwindows based... xfs etc...

but inetd uses just on scary conf file, whil xinetd has confugarble files for each service, laiod out nicer... onyl real difference config wise, i'm sure it's all very different round the back
