I have enabled the syslog and inetd logs on my hp-ux box and now i am continously seeing messages like:
inetd: mount cdrom/tcp: Connection from xxxxxx (xxx.xx.x.xx) at Thu Oct 18 11:22:02 2012
inetd: mount cdrom/tcp: Added service, server <some_directory_location>
Can any one suggest what does it means?

i found mount_cdrom is a file/script and also I just found the following entry in /etc/inetd.conf
"mount_cdrom stream tcp nowait root <location of mount_cdrom script> mount_cdrom"
so question is does mount_cdrom is runnig as a service/daemon on my box as below logs meesages are the inetd logs
and the mount_cdrom entry in inetd.comf seems to be originator....????

Putting a script into inetd.conf (which typically manages network daemons) is a bad modification. Yes, the error messages are created by inetd. Comment or remove the line in /etc/inetd.conf and then run: inetd -c to get rid of the error. Mounting a cdrom should not be done with inetd.
