  • Inetd is precious when you want to save as much resources as possible on a server.
  • Note that you also have to configure some servers, like vsftpd, if you want them to be run through inetd.


  • Edit /etc/inetd.conf .
  • Comment all unnecessary services.
  • Uncomment what you need, or put your own stuff.


  • To enable it permanently:
chmod +x /etc/rc.d/rc.inetd

Then launch it:

/etc/rc.d/rc.inetd start
