       miscd - miscellaneous services daemon


       The  daemon  is	the service daemon for some utility internet services.
       It is started by when it receives a packet or a connection on an appro‐
       priate  socket.	 Once  invoked, determines the type of request and the
       protocol and then attempts to service it.

       When performing services for datagram functions, the daemon  will  stay
       active  until approximately two minutes pass without a service request.
       It will then terminate until reinvoked by

       Invocations of serving for connection-based sockets will terminate when
       the connection is broken.

       The  daemon  supports  only a subset of the internet utility functions.
       The supported services are echo, discard, systat, daytime, quote, char‐
       gen, and time.
