proftp and xinetd
Hi, I have proftpd running as a standalone application on my redhat 9 machine. I want to run this via xinetd now though.
I altered the proftpd.conf file to say inetd instead of standalone for ServerType. That was the only change I made to that file. OK?
I created a file in /etc/xinetd.d/ called proftpd and I put this stuff in that file:
disable = no
socket_type = stream
wait = no
user = root
server = /usr/local/ftpd/sbin/proftpd
nice = 10
But now when i restart the xinetd server (by typing /etc/init.d/xinetd restart) it says it started but I can't ftp to 127.0.0.1 which I could do perfectly fine when it was running as a standalone application.
Any help? thanks.
isn't there an /etc/xinetd.conf file that you need to edit, then restart xinetd
