connection refused message when remotely connecting

Hi, I have three Alpha workstations running Tru64 and have a problem connecting to the workstation I have configured as the master. I am getting the connection refused message every time I try to remotely connect from the other 2 workstations to the master through rsh, rlogin, ftp, etc. But when I go from the master to the other 2 worksataions I have no problem. I can ping to the master ok. Does anyone know what could be the problem. This problem has only occured, it was working fine for over a year.

Re: connection refused message when remotely connecting

The master system is:

- not running the inetd daemon

Examine the output of the "ps -ef" command for the "inetd" process. If not found, then start inetd by "/sbin/init.d/inetd". If it starts properly (recheck with the output of the "ps -ef" command), then it may be that the symlink /sbin/rc3.d/S55inetd (that links to /sbin/init.d/inetd) is missing.

- the inetd daemon is not properly configured

Examine the /etc/inetd.conf file on the master and one of the other workstations to check for differences.
