OK, I've been looking at the xinetd docs, as far as I can see the format for the
xinetd.conf file is _completely_ different from the format for inetd.conf.

They are not in any way the same. I don't know what xinetd did with the above
entry but it won't have understood it !

The format is basically:

service <your_servicename>
   <a load of parameters>

I will ammend the socket documentation to include a sample xinetd.conf entry, it
will take me a few days because I will need to set it up and test it.

If anyone has already done this then perhaps they could post an item here.

cheers Ed
