Question Adding a Service in inetd


Hello everyone. I am brand new to this site and to LINUX. I am currently working my UNIX 8 month trainee position and have been tasked to add a service in etd. I have a couple of questions reference this.

First Q: Do I add this service in "/etc/services"?
Question 2: How do you do this?

I can't seem to figure out how to add a service......

(Since I am not using inetd now, so I recall it from memory) Edit /etc/inetd.conf. There are already some services defined inside and you simply copy and paste and make some modification for your use.

If it is possible, try use xinetd. It is easier to configure.

Add the service into /etc/inetd.conf. Xinetd is only for redhat I believe.

Talking Thanks

Thank you both for the info. I appreciate it.
Now I just need to know how to edit the xinetd.config file? When I use VI and try to :wq! it tells me I don't have permission to change the file.
