How to configure inetd to start gnatsd

If your gnatsd will be started by inetd (the "internet daemon"), add the following entry to your /etc/inetd.conf:

     # port                    userid program
     support stream tcp nowait gnats /usr/local/libexec/gnats/gnatsd gnatsd

and to /etc/services:

     support		1529/tcp		# GNATS

(You may need to use tabulator characters to separate the fields of /etc/services.) Then send inetd a hangup signal (kill -HUP pid-of-inetd).

You may want to use another port instead of 1529 (see Port Number).
