Question Inetutils and xinted


I just installed Inetutils (ftpd, telnetd, etc) and xinted on a Mandrake box. Upon a system restart, whever I try to connect to the ftp or telnet server, I just get a connection refused. Neither telnet nor ftp show up when I call chkconfig --list. I have tried simply going into /usr/local/libexec and calling ./ftpd and ./telnetd and nothing appears to happen. What am I doing wrong?

edit telnet and ftp in /etc/xinetd.d

and set the disable= parameter to no.

Then do a services xinetd reload

Here is what my xinetd.conf file reads now:

# This is a modified and cleaned up version of a xinetd.conf
# originally created by xconv.pl.
# The defaults section sets some information for all services
defaults
{
#The maximum number of requests a particular service may handle
# at once.
instances = 25

# The type of logging. This logs to a file that is specified.

# Another option is: SYSLOG syslog_facility [syslog_level]
log_type = FILE /var/log/servicelog

# What to log when the connection succeeds.
# PID logs the pid of the server processing the request.
# HOST logs the remote host's ip address.
# USERID logs the remote user (using RFC 1413)
# EXIT logs the exit status of the server.
# DURATION logs the duration of the session.
log_on_success = HOST PID

# What to log when the connection fails. Same options as above
log_on_failure = HOST RECORD

# The maximum number of connections a specific IP address can
# have to a specific service.
per_source = 25
}

service ftp
{
socket_type = stream
wait = no
user = root
server = /usr/local/libexec/ftpd
server_args = -l
disable = no
}

service telnet
{
socket_type = stream
wait = no
user = root
server = /usr/local/libexec/telnetd
server_args =
disable = no
}
