- HP: This would crop up on a handful of HP's UNTIL patch PHNE_16832

pounded the crap out of 50 HP's that were correctly patched and could
never duplicate the problem of inetd hanging. The only other times I
have seen it on HP's is when this patch is not installed (I've tried
to make sure this is installed Site-wide) and/or an ancient OS such as
snt-view which is running HP-UX9.07!   ;-)

A couple of quick notes:

PHNE_16832 is for 10.20.  If you're running 11.0 it probably won't hurt to
install PHNE_17027.

Also, you can now get HP's syslogd to not listen on the network:

10.20 see PHCO_21022
11.0 see PHCO_21023

look for the -N option.
