inetd Internet Services Daemon

The inetd daemon starts up Internet standard services when a system boots, and can restart a service while a system is running. Use the Service Management Facility (SMF) to modify the standard Internet services or to have additional services started by the inetd daemon.

Use the following SMF commands to manage services started by inetd:


For administrative actions on a service, such as enabling, disabling, or restarting. For details, refer to the svcadm(1M) man page.


For querying the status of a service. For details, refer to the svcs(1) man page.


For displaying and modifying the properties of a service. For details, refer to the inetadm(1M) man page.

The proto field value in the inetadm profile for a particular service indicates the transport layer protocol on which the service runs. If the service is IPv4-only, the proto field must be specified as tcp, udp, or sctp.
