Not sure what this question has to do with
licensing but, here goes.

a) For over 15 years InterBase used /etc/services
to listen on port 3050 which then has 'inetd'
spawn a gds_inet_server (a connection/engine)
to perform database work. Perhaps I do not
understand everything involved but, I do not
believe that inetd is pooling anything. Once
the gds_inet_server is spawned 'inetd' is no
longer involved and tcp sockets managed the
traffic between client and server. Is my
understanding correct? And also, why is this
deemed unacceptable in an 'enterprise' environment?

b) We have implemented SuperServer, the multithreaded
engine, on platforms that we felt had a good
enough threading package. We are currently
investigating SuperServer for Linux.
