possible netstat bug
I'm running Debian Slink with the 2.0.38 kernel on a AMD K6 and I
found a weird problem.
When executing 'netstat -a', I get (from other usual stuff):
tcp 0 0 *:smtp *:* CLOSE
That should mean that the SMTP server (exim, via xinetd), should
accept any connections (weird enough already to be in this situation), but
if I 'telnet localhost 25' I get the usual SMTP banner and everything
In fact, 'lsof | grep smtp' shows:
xinetd 29746 root 22u inet 0x04afe414 0t0 TCP *:smtp
So it makes me thing there's a netstat bug. Has anybody found the
ps: please answer directly via email as I'm not subscribe to the list due
to its high volume.
