First:

uname -a

Second:

What, exactly, does "unblock port number
3022" mean to you? Why do you think that
this port is currently "blocked"? Is there
some actual problem which you are trying to
solve?

Hi amitnagwanshi

You need to explain what you need.


If you want to configure one port in /etc/services.


You need to edit /etc/services, configure that specificity port, and the reload the /etc/servvices with init -c .

If you have any dout please reply.

Huh?

Are you thinking of "inetd -c"? Does that do
anything like "reload" "/etc/services"? I
doubt it.

Re: unblocking port number

ok Steven

inetd -c causes inet to reload /etc/inetd.conf .

My mistake.
