I run sshd and ftpd on my laptop. I generally start them via:
in my rc.conf.
What are the pros/cons of running them via inetd?
This is in no way a high load or production machine. Just my laptop
that I need access to from time to time.
The one pro I have noticed (which is rather important to me) is that
ftpd does not heed hosts.allow directives when NOT run via inetd. Am I
correct in this? I prefer to use tcpwrappers to further protect my sshd
and ftpd. I generally keep ftpd firewalled off from the world and when
someone needs to (anonymous) ftp something to me I open the firewall.
But it would be nice to allow only their IP using hosts.allow (as I just
enable/disable a generic ruleset in ipfw). So should I forget to
disable the ruleset in ipfw then I am not open all day till I reboot.
