- Subject: Inetd question
I installed the latest cygwin and inetd-1.3.23 on my W2K PC to my account only recently. Initially after installation, I got id unknown error. But I fixed it by checking the mailing list and changed my login ID in /etc/passwd file to the it said unknown then I could run bash with no problem.
However, when I tried to make inetd working so that I could telnet to this PC, and encountered the following problems.
1) When I setup inetd running as a service using local system account, it started with no error but when I telnet to it, I got "Connection refused" error. I ran "ps -ef|grep inetd", UID showed up as 400 not SYSTEM. (SYSTEM is using UID 18).
2) My account is a domain account but it is part of local admin group, so I tried to start inetd service using my account. This time after the service started successfully, I could get login prompt, however whatever password I put in, I always got "Login incorrect" error.
I tried recreating /etc/passwd, /etc/group files which was created automatically by the installation, checking /etc/inetd.conf which has telnet starting as root there. But I still got the same problem. I didn't find any helpful log in the event log either.
Anyone experienced the similar problem before?
BTW, I didn't find syslogd on my cygwin installation. Which package is it in?
Thank you very much for your help!
