- Subject: 1.5.21: problem with xinetd permissions
I have been trying to setup xinetd in my windows xp pro computer under
cygwin with no luck
(tried that in 3 different computers with the same result)
(I must mention that I did it in the past with success - had to redo it
because of new installed OS
and new installed cygwin)
now from some reason I cant and the error I get is:
$ /etc/rc.d/init.d/xinetd start
Starting xinetd: [ OK ]
touch: cannot touch `/var/lock/subsys/xinetd': Permission denied
$ ls -la /var/lock/
drwxr-xr-x+ 3 SYSTEM root 0 Oct 12 20:05 .
drwxrwx---+ 9 eran Users 0 Oct 12 20:05 ..
drwxr-xr-x+ 2 SYSTEM root 0 Oct 13 12:06 subsys
I installed all the neccesary packages for making it work
$ cygcheck -c | egrep "sysvinit|initscript|chkconfig|xinetd"
chkconfig 1.2.24h-1 OK
initscripts 0.9-1 OK
sysvinit 2.84-4 OK
xinetd 2.3.9-1 OK
and after that run:
init-config (answered no at both questions - tried even with yes answer on
xinetd-config (answered yes on both questions)
now I see all the relevant port listening but if I try them is say the below
$ netstat -aon | grep 23
TCP 0.0.0.0:23 0.0.0.0:0 LISTENING 3252
$ telnet localhost
Connected to 188.8.131.52.
Escape character is '^]'.
Connection closed by foreign host.
I've searched for that problem in your newsgroups and found the below link
(that was long time ago - see the date)
please let me know how can i fix this
