    Does CPanel have any services that run out of inetd? I need to know if I should enable it before I install. Thanks kindly.

    Most services need to be in inetd or xinetd such as POP, SMTP FTP etc, but looking mine it looks like only IMAPD is in there. Good question :)

    To my knowledge, this is an OS specific situation and has nothing to do with any type of Control Panel. Linux itself uses 'xinetd' and I was not aware that 'inetd - anything' would even work on a Linux system.

    Although, there is

    /etc/inetd.conf

    there is also

    /usr/sbin/inetdconvert

    Topic is a bit out of my area, but do believe, nothing related to 'inetd' should be able to run on a Linux system.

    Thanks. I am running Freebsd by the way so I guess will enable it.

    xinetd does not get used by ALL linux distro, only Red hat has made it the standard. Its stupid since it doesnt provide backwards compatibilty to use inetd.conf files and stuff like that.
