Re: How does inetd work?

My understanding is that it depends upon the type of connection. A dgram ("nowait") server is spawned separately and the socket is passed, while a wait server is passed stdin, stdout, and stderr and managed through inetd.

I know inetd forwards a programms (servers) stdout to the client... but
where does it forward the requests from a client to? It's not stdin..

It there any simple example server available that was written to work
with inetd?
