Overview

finetd is an Internet
Superserver. It reads a configuration file to see which TCP/UDP ports to listen on, or which UNIX path names to create and listen on.

Stream, Datagram (dgram), and Seqpacket socket types are supported.

finetd provides the following services built-in (for both TCP and UDP):
