First off, cygwin is great.
w2k, latest cygwin
I installed the net utils, and read the following pages.
Ultimately, I'm trying to get a cvs pserver going, but for right now, I
just want to open up a port to echo. Any port will do. Here's what I
1) Added the following line to /etc/inetd.conf
cvspserver stream tcp nowait root /bin/echo echo hello
2) created /etc/services and added the following line to it
3) started the server using cygrunsrv
4) "telnet localhost" -- this works
5) "telnet localhost 2401" -- get the following error
Could not open a connection to host on port 2401 : Connect failed
6) view the log file /var/log/inetd.log -- it contains the following
ADD : cvspserver proto=tcp, wait=0, user=root builtin=0 server=/bin/echo
FREE: cvspserver proto=tcp, wait=0, user=root builtin=0 server=/bin/echo
Instead of "FREE..." I want to see "registered /bin/echo on 2401".
What happened? Any ideas? Does this have to do with my services file?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
