General :: Xinetd And Trying To Get R-1 To Work ?

Jul 8, 2009

I am really not very experienced with linux and have only just started working off the command line in windows as well.

I know the basics but I am trying to install R-1 and I was having a lot of difficulties and figured out that it was that xinetd was not running.

So I tried to run it service xinetd start and it said unecognized service so then I installed xinetd and there was already a xinetd.d directory with all of the processes i needed with the .conf file but so when i run xinetd -d


My xinetd.conf file looks like this:


# All service files are stored in the /etc/xinetd.d directory
includedir /etc/xinetd.d
# End /etc/xinetd

This is what one of the files in xinetd.d looks like


I need to get xinetd running so that i can finish installing R-1.

General :: Using Xinetd - No Responses Or Messages At All - Doesn't Work

Sep 30, 2010

I'm going through strange symptom with my linux.

When I type

Code: service xinetd [start|restart|stop]

There is no responses or messages at all. Even when I tried some meaningless argument, such as

Code:service xinetd sdfsdfsdg , it just doesn't work.

I checked that xinetd is installed by using the command

Code: rpm -qv xinetd

Also I do not see the error message "Unrecognized service" when I type the commands.

Here's what I see when I type the command.

General :: To Xinetd Or Not To Xinetd ?

Jul 21, 2009

I've been reading the RUTE Linux book and they recommend the use of xinetd to run services. However, this book is already a bit outdated, and I was wondering whether this still applies to today's circumstances?

Fedora Servers :: Sshd Within Xinetd Doesn't Work

Aug 21, 2010

I recently installed Fedora 13 on VMware 7 environment without X window. sshd did work fine, but when I tried to put it into xinetd, it doesn't work any more. Here is what I have done so far :

I stopped sshd. #service sshd stop

and I configured xinetd.conf like below.


# This is the master xinetd configuration file. Settings in the
# default section will be inherited by all service configurations
# unless explicitly overridden in the service configuration. See
# xinetd.conf in the man pages for a more detailed explanation of
# these attributes.


I don't know what I did wrong with them. I configured xinetd.conf, and I made service configuration file 'ssh' in /etc/xinetd.d, and I restarted xinetd.

What am I supposed to do to make a life on my sshd within xinetd ?

Networking :: Modify Ftpd Source Code To Work With Xinetd?

Sep 23, 2010

I read that xinetd listens on the service port and passes incoming traffic to the service (ftpd) via stdin. However, the ftpd source code reads its input from a socket not from stdin.

Am I to conclude that in order to be managed by xinetd, the source code for ftpd (or telnetd etc..) must be modified or recompiled to take its input from stdin??

Server :: /etc/xinetd.conf Vs /etc/xinetd.d

I installed Subversion and xinetd and added Subversion as a service to xinetd.conf as instructed at

I restarted the xinetd service using /sbin/service. however, Subversion does not end up being listed in /etc/xinetd.d nor does it seem to be running and occupying the port altogether.

General :: Xinetd Server Configuration - Infinite Loop?

Apr 14, 2011

I have a java server console program that I have configured xinetd to start when connection comes in on a given port and then the program runs in an infinite loop receiving inputstream from telephone exchanges. The thing is, when a new chunk of stream comes from the exchange xinetd forks a new process each time. I tried setting the wait parameter to yes and restarted the deamon, but no success. How can I stop this behavior and have the deamon just direct the stream to the process already running? Am I missing something in my config or is it just incorrect?

My config is as follow:
instances = 60
log_type = SYSLOG authpriv
log_on_success = HOST PID
log_on_failure = HOST
cps = 50 10
includedir /etc/xinetd.d

And then my actual config,
service aos_larmar
socket_type = stream
protocol = tcp
user = root
wait = yes
instances = 256
server = /home/gunnl/java/
port = 5204
disable = no

My server OS is, Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES release 4 (Nahant Update 7)

Server :: Run /usr/bin/foo Through Xinetd ?

Apr 28, 2009

If i run /usr/bin/foo through xinetd and have /etc/xinetd.d/foo conf file something like:

1 service foo
2 {
3 port = 3691
4 socket_type = stream
5 protocol = tcp
6 wait = no
7 user = www-data
8 server = /usr/bin/foo
9 server_args = -x
10 }

Is /usr/bin/foo supposed to be listed in the list of all processes on that machine (ps aux)? i added the conf file, bouced xinetd daemon via /sbin/service, yet foo does not seem to be running. the xinetd doc online seems pretty incomplete.

Programming :: Pixelserv With Xinetd ?

Oct 22, 2009 pixelserv is a http-daemon which returns a pixel for every http-request. It was originally written in perl [url], but this is a tad too heavy for a small linux device like a DD-WRT router [url].

I was able to compile it and it runs fine standalone, but I want to run it under xinetd using this configuration-file.


When I do a "wget [url]" from the console of that router it will fail with this in /var/log/messages


It seems it's incompatible with xinetd, but I lack the knowledge and experience to modify this. A whole community will be grateful if someone is able to make this runable under xinetd.

Fedora Security :: Xinetd And Bash Scripts - No Need For SSL

Jul 14, 2009

I've recently setup a simple service application using xinetd, which runs a bash script to allow users to check for specific events into a log file. The contents of this logfile is not sensitive, so no need for SSL or password protection. Though, my concern about it is the possibility of a malicious request to cause execution of arbitrary code. I've seen similar bash issues discussed briefly a couple times, but never actually seen any solid point of how much of this is a fact, or myth. I've tested some obvious things, like sending tricky characters into the request, but so far it looks ok. So my question here is, considering the following code below, would be possible for an attacker to exploit it? How safe it is to have this sort of application running as a service?

# /etc/xinetd.conf
service logfile-search {
server= /home/guest/logfile-search.bash
socket_type= stream
wait= no
instances= 5
per_source= 1
user= guest
nice= 15
log_type= FILE /home/guest/logfile-search.bash.access.log
log_on_success= HOST DURATION EXIT
log_on_failure= HOST
# /etc/services

# /home/guest/logfile-search.bash

trap "" 2 3 24
echo -n "Enter search string: " ; read -t 120
if [ "$REPLY" ]; then
echo "`date` - $REMOTE_HOST - $REPLY" >>/home/guest/
grep -i "$REPLY" /home/guest/logfile.txt

Ubuntu Servers :: Use Xinetd To Start Svnserve?

Jan 30, 2011

I am trying to run svnserve on startup on an Ubuntu Server 10.04 machine using xinetd

My repositories are at /home/svn, so the directory should be the same as in the example. Following the example, the owner should be www-data, I assume. (Is that right?) I've also tried the admin user account as as the svnowner (the one used to set the svnserver up).

I've never done any shell scripting, so I tried xinetd instead of using the startup script. But if I don't get any feedback for using xinetd that will be my next course of option.

For reference, the link above suggests adding

svn stream tcp nowait svnowner /usr/bin/svnserve svnserve -i -r /home/svn

to the /etc/inetd.conf file, replacing svnowner and /home/svn to the appropriate values (although I'm not 100% sure what those should be). I assume since I did a chown on the repo to www-data that www-data is the owner I need to put in that line, but it doesn't work.

It's just annoying to have to ssh in and type

svnserve -d --foreground -r /home/svn

every time I reboot.

Red Hat / Fedora :: Configure SNMP Server Using XINETD?

Server :: VNC Over Xinetd Doesn't Starts Vncserver

Nov 26, 2010

in Debian Lenny, using TightVNC 1.3.9 I can setup a VNC server manually by using

vncserver -query localhost -once -geometry 1024x768 -depth 16 :1

But then, as I have read is a better option, I use xinetd with the following configuration:

service vnc-1024x768x16
protocol = tcp
socket_type = stream
wait = no


In fact, I was considering that the problem was with xinetd, but I have other services setted up with it (telnet & ftp for example) and I can use them correctly.

So now I'm lost with this, what else am I not considering with VNC service through xinetd? Where can I find logs or useful information to get a clue about this problems?

CentOS 5 Server :: No Xinetd Installed By Default?

Jul 18, 2009

yesterday I installed my first CentOS system. Before I was always using Debian for my servers. When I configured my vsftpd I was just wondering how to setup xinetd or inetd for listening on ports and starting vsftpd. I found /etc/xinetd.d. But there is no xinetd installed by default. Why? Shall I start all my services in standalone mode? What is the concept of CentOS in this issue?
