A secure replacement for inetd.
Xinetd is a secure replacement for inetd, the Internet services
daemon. Xinetd provides access control for all services based on the
address of the remote host and/or on time of access and can prevent
denial-of-access attacks. Xinetd provides extensive logging, has no
limit on the number of server arguments, and lets you bind specific

has its own specific configuration file for Xinetd; the files are
located in the /etc/xinetd.d directory.
