DebianNet.pm - create, remove, enable or disable entry in
You can use the functions in DebianNet.pm to to add,
remove, enable or disable entries in the /etc/inetd.conf
file. After the /etc/inetd.conf file has been changed, a
SIGHUP signal will be sent to the inetd process to make
sure that inetd will use the new /etc/inetd.conf file. The
functions can also be used to add entries that are com-
mented out by default. They will be treated like normal
entries. That also means that if you already have an entry
that is commented out you can't add an entry for the same
service without removing the old one first.
The DebianNet functions treat entries that are commented
out by a single '#' character as entries that have been
commented out by a user. It won't change such entries.
For shell scripts you can also use the update-inetd com-
mand. See update-inetd(8) for further information.
$DebianNet::inetdcf = "FILENAME";
Use FILENAME instead of /etc/inetd.conf (e.g. for
$DebianNet::sep = "## ";
"## " will be used as the default comment
characters. You can use this option to specify
different comment characters. This is only neces-
sary if you have to deal with two (or more) ser-
vices of the same name.
$DebianNet::multi = "true";
If you want to disable/remove more than one entry
at a time you should use this option. If you try to
remove more than one entry at a time without using
this option the program will show a warning and
asks the user if he want to continue.
$DebianNet::verbose = "true";
Explain what is being done.
Add $newentry to the group $group of the
/etc/inetd.conf file. If the entry already exist it
will be enabled (it will also detect entries with
different program options). Using $group is
optional (the default group is the group OTHER).
If the group does not exist the entry will be
placed at the end of the file.
Remove $entry from /etc/inetd.conf . You can use a
regular expression to remove the entry.
Enable $service (e.g. "ftp") in /etc/inetd.conf .
Using $pattern is optional. It can be used to
select a service. You only need this option if you
have two (or more) services of the same name. An
example: you have three ftp entries in the
/etc/inetd.conf file (all disabled by default) and
you want to enable the entry which uses the wu-ftpd
daemon. To do this, use the pattern "wu-ftpd" (or
any other regular expression that matches this
Disable SERVICE (e.g. "ftp") in /etc/inetd.conf .
Using $pattern is optional (see above).
