TCP/IP Services

Services such as telnet, ftp, and rlogin are started by the inetd daemon, which runs automatically at boot time. Like the name service ordering specified in nsswitch.conf, you can configure TCP/IP services in the file /etc/inetd.conf by using the inetd -t flag.

For example, you can use inetd to log the IP addresses of all incoming TCP connections (remote logins and telnet). To turn the logging on, kill the running inetd and type:

  # /usr/sbin/inetd -t -s
The t switch turns on TCP connection-tracing in inetd. Refer to the inetd(1M) and inetd.conf(4) man pages.
