Re: [leafnode-list] Server refuses connection

Thanks Stefan.

Checking things over, I found that the config file had user and group root, 
so I changed that to news, but it wasn't enough.

The telnet test verified that a connection was not possible.

I did find that in /etc/xinetd.d/leafnode, the first line "disable=no" had 
been displaced to the right, so I put it back, but this wasn't the answer 

One thing that I had noticed but overlooked mentioning:  whenever I shutdown 
xinetd is not running.  I tried restarting xinetd twice in succession, and 
both times the response was:

Stopping xinetd:                                           [FAILED]
Starting xinetd:                                           [  OK  ]

further, there is no xinetd listed by ps aux.  So it looks as though xinetd 
is stopping as soon as it starts.

Although I am using xinetd, the suggested test running "inetd -d" used to 
give the right answer.  Now it doesn't any more.
