4 Wow, you got some wacky ass answers on this.
6 First off telneting to the port should work as long as you're on the
7 same box since it's supposed to be running on otherwise known
8 as lo or the loopback address which should clear up that.
10 Then I'd look at logs. xinetd can be finicky about starting services if
11 they aren't configured right. I'd restart xinetd and see what it drops
12 in /var/log/messages about which services it's activating. It's usually
13 pretty good about telling you if it's accepting a service though it may
14 not tell you why it decided a service wasn't up to snuff.
16 As root a netstat -ptln might tell you if xinetd is holding the port,
17 but since xinetd is a superdaemon of sorts it might not show it on the
18 port unless there is a working connection... I'm not sure and have no
19 desire to install xinetd to find out. :)
