I believe that he could set the entries in /etc/inetd.conf and /etc/services by running the shell script mcinet7.6.sh, which is located in the HOME directory for the user 'mcidas' as follows: <login as root> cd /home7/ldm/mcidas sh mcinet7.6.sh install mcadde >He has examined the script (for non-NIS >installations) but wants to make sure that he analysis is correct OK. >If you have it available, please send to Leonard an example >"inetd.conf" with the substitutions in place. For reasons of speed, >please respond directly to address@hidden Here are /etc/inetd.conf and /etc/services entries from our Solaris SPARC 5.6 machine: inetd.conf (the white spaces are tabs everywhere except after the -H!!!): mcserv stream tcp nowait mcadde /home/mcidas/bin/mcservsh mcservsh -H /home/mcidas mccompress stream tcp nowait mcadde /home/mcidas/bin/mcservsh /home/mcidas/bin/mcservsh -H /home/mcidas services: mcserv 500/tcp # McIDAS ADDE port mccompress 503/tcp # McIDAS ADDE compression port Here are our /etc/inetd.conf entries when using TCP wrappers: mcserv stream tcp nowait mcadde /usr/sbin/tcpd /home/mcidas/bin/mcservsh -H /home/mcidas mccompress stream tcp nowait mcadde /usr/sbin/tcpd /home/mcidas/bin/mcservsh -H /home/mcidas I took a quick look at the commented out /etc/inetd.conf entries on s418. I note that the user is specified as 'root' in the mcserv line; this should be 'mcadde'. I further note that the mccompress line is truncated. >Thank you. You are welcome. Tom Yoksas
