I'll try again ;-0
this is /etc/xinetd.d/telnet :
flags = REUSE
socket_type = stream
wait = no
user = root
server = /usr/sbin/in.telnetd
log_on_failure += USERID
disable = yes
And since its run via xinetd:
This is the contents of /etc/xinetd.conf
instances = 60
log_type = SYSLOG authpriv
log_on_success = HOST PID
log_on_failure = HOST
cps = 25 30
I am not sure what the value 60 is exactly, I assume its 60 xinetd
instances and that each service within has a number of sessions it can
have? Assumption is a great thing.
If I increase this value to say 250, will this increase the number of
allowed telnet sessions? Will I also waste loads of resources?
I seem to recall that telnetd allowed up to 250 sessions at any one
time, so this is why I am unsure of the value "60".
