3.3 Disable inetd if possible, Check if newinetsvc contains grep statement to count lines in inetd.conf


If the actions in Section 2 result in all inetd-based services being disabled, then there is no point in running inetd at boot time. The code added to the newinetsvc boot script will result in inetd automatically being restarted at boot time if services are ever enabled in inetd.conf. However, it may be necessary to manually start inetd if the administrator wishes to enable some of these services without rebooting the system.
