xinetd.conf


red hate 7.2(enigma) kernel 2.4.7, i bought it like 2 years ago or somehting, just now getting into linux.

services like rlogin, rsh, and rcp are turned on and off by xinetd.d, so i was just curious why they are not in my xinetd.conf. is it because i set the firewall to high when i installed? so it didn't add them at installation.

this red hat book is difficult to follow on certain issues, when it was showing me in the book to look at xinetd.conf with cat command their's displayed
service shell
{
commands here
}

when i looked in mine all it has is
defualt
{
commands here
}


just don't want to connect my linux to the internet until i know how to set my linux to my router and windows xp laptop and its sercure.

Try using the command, chkconfig, its in /sbin. Either way check the man pages, its a very easy way to turn on or shut off services that are located in xinetd.conf.

Good Luck

RH 7,2 is quite old. Make sure that you apply all the relevant Red hat and fedora legacy patches to the system before connecting it to the net. If possible, you should try and find a more recent distro to use. I think even fedora legacy dropped their RH 7.2 support due to lack of community interest.

No need to buy, if you have a fast Internet connection. Most distros are downloadable from www.linuxiso.org or http://iso.linuxquestions.org -- of cpourse, once you find one you like, it's nice to support the project by buying a CD set.
