For the past few days I have been trying to get the remote suite to work on Win
NT4SP3, B19.3, i.e. B19 with B19.1 and latest Coolview. Eventually I managed
to get inetd to start as a service but with complaints from the Services
Applet. I used NT Resource Kit's SRVINSTW.EXE to install the service with name
inetd. It shows up in the Services applet. I set it up to start as
'LocalSystem' user, following Sergey's advice though I added the required
rights to the Administrator account and tried that as well. The service
starts, as witnessed by the 'netstat -an' and the ability to telnet to the
machine however the Services Applet, when one presses the 'start' button,
'thinks' for a long time and eventually comes back with 'Could not start the
inetd service on \\zcat', followed by 'Error 2186: The service is not
responding to the control function'. I tried with the '-d' in the parameters
box and without, both using LocalSystem and Administrator. Same results. I
scoured the archives for tips/hints/whatnots to no avail. Sure enough, there
are plenty of messages relating to the remote suite however most of the start
with 'I have inetd starting as NT service ...' :-) which is a bit further than
I can get. As I say it is working, sort of, but bewfore I set it up to start
'automatic' I would like to see it behave. Also, where do I put the '-d'
option ? There appears to be no place to put it in the srvinstw.exe's dialog
Can someone or more please give me a hint or two ?
