Damn, I see I have not been clear enough in the below posting....

I meant to say that I don't advise people to use the _acedb_ server with xinetd
at the moment. Redhat linux seems to run lots of the standard services (telnet,
ftp etc.) without problems under xinetd.

I will as a matter of priority get the latest xinetd installed here and test it
out with the acedb server and let you all know what I find.

cheers Ed
