       inetd - internet service daemon

       /etc/inetd [ -d ] [ configfile ]

       The  daemon  is	the  listener  daemon for most of the internet service

       When is started, it reads the configuration file specified (configfile)
       and opens a socket for each specified service.

       When receives a connection on a stream socket or a packet on a datagram
       socket, then invokes the server specified in the configuration file  to
       service	the request.  The server is given a socket descriptor of 0 for
       the service requested.  The configfile is the configuration file speciā€
       fying the services requiring the daemon's services.  If a configuration
       file is not specified, then uses the default file, The format  of  this
       file is described in The configuration file is reread whenever receives
       a hangup signal.

       -d Open all sockets with the debug option.  The socket will  be	passed
	  to the server with debug enabled.

       The  daemon  can	 only  handle  a limited number of services at any one
       time.  This number is related to the maximum number of file descriptors
       that  a	process can have.  If many services are needed, you should run
       multiple copies of each with its own individual configuration file.
