writesrv(8) [osf1 man page]

writesrv(8)						      System Manager's Manual						       writesrv(8)

writesrv - Lets users send messages to and receive messages from a remote system. SYNOPSIS
/usr/sbin/writesrv DESCRIPTION
The writesrv daemon allows users to send messages to users on a remote system, and to receive responses from users on a remote system with the write command. The writesrv command receives incoming requests from a write command and creates a server process to handle the request. This server process communicates with the client process (write) and provides whatever services are requested. To perform these services, the writesrv daemon creates a socket on the port defined in the /etc/services file. All requests for service go as messages to this socket. STARTING AND STOPPING writesrv. You can cause the writesrv daemon to be started during system boot with /sbin/init.d/write. The writesrv daemon starts automatically if the WRITESRV variable is defined properly in /etc/re.config. To start writesrv automatically during system boot, do the following as superuser. rcmgr set WRITESRV yes To prevent writesrv from starting automatically during system boot, do the following as superuser: rcmgr set WRITESRV no By default, writesrv is not set and therefore /usr/sbin/writesrv does not run. You can start the writesrv daemon manually as follows: /sbin/init.d/write start You can stop writesrv manually as follows: /sbin/init.d/write stop NOTES
If the writesrv daemon terminates abnormally (that is, for a system crash, a power failure, or the kill -9 command), someone must manually clean out the /usr/spool/writesrv directory to remove any files left behind. RELATED INFORMATION

XTELLD(8)						      System Manager's Manual							 XTELLD(8)

xtelld - daemon receiving messages from xtell(1) clients SYNOPSIS
xtelld [options] DESCRIPTION
xtelld is daemon receiving messages from the xtell(1) client and displaying them to apropriate user. OPTIONS
--help Short help --alone Force server to run standalone --inetd Force server to act as service of inetd --version Print version information and exit. -sX Lifetime for spawned services (in seconds) ex: -s25 maintain connections for up to 25 seconds -mX Spawn no more than X children services at a time ex: -m15 service no more than 15 requests at once. Note: ignored if inetd service -pX Use port X, default: 4224 -n Do not lookup addresses, use IP numbers instead USAGE
Xtell daemon can run either from inetd(preferred) or from command line. If you decide to start it from inetd, add this line to /etc/ser- vices : xtell 4224/tcp # xtell server and this line to /etc/inetd.conf : xtell stream tcp nowait nobody.tty /usr/sbin/tcpd /usr/local/sbin/xtelld Notice that the entries are separated by tabs, not spaces. Restart inetd with killall -HUP inetd What to do if you are a normal user and want to run xtell daemon: You can't run it from inetd, obviously. Just start ./xtelld to use xtell on default port (4224). In this case, xtell can write messages only to you. If there is another user on that system willing to get messages, either s/he starts xtelld on another port (e.g. ./xtelld -p4225), or makes his/her tty writable by you (e.g. chmod a+rw /dev/tty* /dev/pts/*) AUTHOR
