Unix Tip #4538- August 14, 2018

INETD.CONF CLEAN UP


In most cases, vendors install the /etc/inetd.conf
file pretty wide open. There are many processes in
this file that do not have to be running.

One good way to improve the systems performance is
to not run the unnecessary daemons.

If you do not plan to offer or run those
services, then comment them out and restart
inetd daemon.

Here is a list of the less common daemons, that
can turned off on workstations (Servers may
require some of these daemons).

finger
uucp
http
bootp
dhcp_bootp
tftp
ntalk
walld
...etc...
