    Where is inetd ?

    I'm trying to install my HP C7200 ( all in one ) printer-scanner on my router-firewall that is also used as a file, printer and scanner server.
    I don't have any problem with the printer part, the 2 other rigs on my network can use it.
    The trouble is with the scanner.
    I followed the Ubuntu scanning howto documentation but when trying to restart the inetd deamon I have the following message:

    sudo /etc/init.d/inetd restart
    sudo: /etc/init.d/inetd: command not found

    What package should I get in order to have inetd installed ?
    The only package listed by synaptic is "inetutils-inetd" is it the one I should install ?

    There is also xinetd, which is supposed to be better. I don't get into the inetds enough to say if that is true or not.
    Help yourself: Search the community docs or try other resources.

    Yes, inetutils-inetd is something you could use. Just change the above command to restart to: sudo /etc/init.d/inetutils-inetd restart

    Hope this helps.
