Bug Fix Advisory - RHBA-2004:315-05
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Summary:
Updated xinetd package

An updated xinetd package that fixes problems with rpc services is now
available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3.

Description:
Xinetd provides access control for all services based on the address of the
remote host or on time of access. Xinetd provides extensive logging, has no
limit on the number of server arguments, prevents denial of access attacks,
and allows binding of specific services to specific IP addresses on a host
machine.

This update fixes an error that occurs when connections to tcp rpc services
are denied because xinetd was incapable of determining the address of the
client. 
 
This update also fixes an error when attempting to enable more than one 
rpc service. 
 
All users of xinetd should upgrade to this updated package, which
resolves these issues.
