XCONV(8) xinetd XCONV(8)

NAME - inetd.conf to xinetd.conf converter

SYNOPSIS can convert existing inetd.conf files (configuration for the inetd program) into xinetd.conf files (configuration for the xinetd program)

USAGE < /etc/inetd.conf > /etc/xinetd.conf

DESCRIPTION / PURPOSE is provided by the xinetd package to assist in the migration from inetd based systems to ones based on xinetd.

Functionality is similar to the itox program, so reading itox(8) is recommended. An important note here is that does not support the -daemon_dir argument.
