Subject Connection Refused Red Hat 8.0
Author Peter
As per the directions below, on red Hat 8.0 there is no
/etc/inetd.conf file.

Does anyone know which file I can try this in to get rid of a
'Connection Refused' error?

I can't connect with CommDiag.


2. Check the /etc/inetd.conf Entry

Was the server node just installed with InterBase? Is the
/usr/etc/inetd.conf entry correct? Check the Interbase entry in the
server's /etc/inetd.conf.

The following is what is in the file in /usr/interbase/inetd.conf.isc;
this is the entry that should be in /etc/inetd.conf. If you need to edit
/etc/inetd.conf you must be superuser.

# Interbase Software Corporation Database Server
gds_db stream tcp nowait root /usr/interbase/bin/gds_inet_server

The above is the entry for Unix systems (both BSD and SysV-based); the
file containing this entry can be found on all platforms in the main
Interbase directory. (Note: on the SCO platform, the entry differs in
that the executable is named "gds_inet_srvr" because of short filenames;
its /etc/inetd.conf entry is different accordingly.) Be sure to check
the inetd.conf.isc file on your platform for the correct entry.

After addition of an entry to /etc/inetd.conf, the inet daemon must be
killed and restarted. See A.8. above for instructions as to how to do that.
