Why would one want sshd to run from inetd? sshd should typically be run as a daemon. As far as I know, there isn't a debconf way to place it as a inetd process. But if you really want it to be run from inetd... it'll be very similar to this as an entry in /etc/inetd.conf: ssh stream tcp nowait root /usr/sbin/tcpd /usr/sbin/sshd Please make sure you have priv separation enabled in /etc/ssh/sshd_config ie: UsePrivilegeSeparation yes also in /etc/services ensure you have: ssh 22/tcp # SSH Remote Login Protocol ssh 22/udp Also make sure that you touch the file: /etc/ssh/sshd_not_to_be_run so it won't start on bootup spewing errors that something else is listening on port 22. Now, since I have not tested this at all... it should really work, though YMMV. -- greg, email@example.com The technology that is Stronger, Better, Faster: Linux Use Debian GNU/Linux, its a bazaar thing NOTICE: Due to Presidential Executive Orders, the National Security Agency may have read this email without warning, warrant, or notice, and certainly without probable cause.
