Re: Jul 9 08:06:03 all inetd[122]: httpd/tcp server failing

       I was trying a loop test to stress performance on our secure W3
server and found that inetd under SunOS detects what it thinks to be
loops and shuts down all httpd services untill a kill -HUP is sent to
the inetd process.  How is this bug/feature controlled, and doesn't this
lead very directly to denial of services attacks?

There is a patch for SunOS 4.1.x that add an option to control this behaviour.
