In /etc/inetd.conf I have:
sane-port stream tcp nowait saned /usr/local/sbin/saned saned Which is what I had, but what I was missing is TCP Wrappers, which are configuered (much to my suprise) in /etc/hosts.allow, that is where this line needed to go: sane-port proto=tcp accept=1 max=0 user=saned group=(null)class=daemon builtin=0 x0 server=/usr/local/sbin/saned policy="" Having been doing this a long time, altjough never having dealt with TCP Wrappers in the past, I recall this file having a somewhat different purpose in the pat, so I thought it was just a leagcy file. -- One of the main causes of the fall of the roman empire was that, lacking zero, they had no way to indicate successful termination of their C programs. _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
