uucp deamon

Can I disable this service?

Can it have any effect on system, applications and users?

How can I do that? All commands.

Thanks

Re: uucp deamon

Sure, just comment out the uucp line in /etc/inetd.conf and then run "inetd -c" to re-load.

Re: uucp deamon

Comment the line of uucp in /etc/inetd.conf:

#uucp stream tcp nowait root /usr/sbin/uucpd uucpd

( add the # at the start of the line )

Then refresh inetd daemon:

inetd -c

If you disable it ( I encourage you to do it ) you will not be able to receive uucp ( Unix to Unix copy ) connection to your server...
But I think you don't need this kind of server... so disable it :-)
