What are the options you are using with ftpd with inetd.conf , are you using -d (debug) option?

Shalom,

man inetd

There is an option in there for turning on and off options on the fly. Change inetd.conf to permanently chnge logging.

Logging is a good thing though and turning it off might cause you to fail a security audit.

Hi:

In '/etc/inetd.conf', remove the '-l' switch on the 'ftpd' line and restart 'inetd' with 'inetd -c'.

Regards!

configuration if ftpd in inetd.conf is :

# grep ftpd /etc/inetd.conf
ftp stream tcp6 nowait root /usr/lbin/ftpd ftpd -a
# have one, please consult the tftpd(1M) manual entry for
#tftp dgram udp wait root /usr/lbin/tftpd tftpd\

no option "-l" and "-d", the message "Apr 6 10:12:02 smedpapp2 ftpd[14912]: FTP server (Revision 3.0 Version wuftpd-2
.6.1 Wed Dec 19 08:27:34 GMT 2007) ready." still there.

you already have the -a options which is the option to use the /etc/ftpd/ftpaccess.

can you check if you have this file and if the file contains the 'banner' entry.

if you dont have this file you can

cp /usr/newconfig/etc/ftpd/ftpaccess /etc/ftpd/ftpaccess

and you can try changing the banner to point to your customized message :
