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

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


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.
