RE: HOWTO setup ftpd and telnetd

  You use the /cygdrive/c/winnt/system32/drivers/etc/services.  I generally
make a link (ln -s) to that file in my /etc/ directory.
  The services I was referring to were those in /etc/inetd.conf.  I
generally comment out EVERYTHING except SSHD.
  I haven't played with CVS at all... sorry.

Ah ha, the missing link!  I wish I would have known about /bin/iu-config a
time ago.  Hopefully this bit of information will make it into the readme.

Have you had luck getting server-side of CVS working with inetd?

I don't have a /etc/services.  Do you know where the port numbers for ftp,
telnet, etc. are kept?

Thanks for the tip!
