Improving the inetd.conf configuration

The inetd.conf, located on /etc/, is the default configuration file for inetd.
Inetd (internet super-server) is a daemon that starts and "control" other
network services. By configuring inetd correctly, you can avoid a lot of
security problems. Here follow some guidelines to improve your inetd.conf

  • Disable All services that you will not use
  • Always use tcp-wrappers to control the access
