I have root access to my machine,
I need to add a service to this machine console based.
I need a service running on a port and server may be /bin/ls

It must not ask any username and password. line we can place in init.d or xinit.d and cabe be like

i assume this service will be like...

service myname
 disable = no
socket-type = stream
wait = no
server = /bin/sh
//must give a port number to activate.

Can anyone please make necessary connections and also steps to do in starting and stoping the service.

Thank You,

You didn't specify the distribution of Linux that you're using, so we don't know the method it uses to start and stop services.

Also, if you can tell a little more about what this "service" is that you're trying to set up, we might be able to help more quickly.
