|SUBJECT ||Re: [NYLXS - HANGOUT] xinetd
xinetd is the replacement for INETD and it is the super server.
You can find out which ports it is listening to with lsof -i | grep xinetd
The purprose fo it is to reduce memory usage for services that are infrequently
called. Also, the programs then can be much less work as they do not
have to known about networking all they do is write to stdout when
called from xinetd.
