xinetd: service bootps not supported
Posted on 2001-09-05
I'm trying to set up bootps (in.bootpd v2.4) on a RH7.0.
File /etc/services contains:
bootps 67/tcp # BOOTP server
bootpc 68/tcp # BOOTP client
File /etc/xinetd.d/bootps contains:
socket_type = dgram
wait = yes
user = root
server = /usr/sbin/in.bootpd
On /etc/rc.d/init.d/xinetd start, bootps is not started and the following error appears in /var/log/messages:
"socket creation failed (protocol not supported (errno=93)), service=bootps"
Note that the ftp and telnet services are successfully started.
If I run "in.bootpd" on the command prompt, it starts and the bootps service appears in "netstat -a".
To prevent syntax errors in the bootps file, I have rewrited it by duplicating the telnet file.
Any idea ?
Thanks for help.
