I think I have the answer to Will's question regarding
inetd's inability to start as a Service.
Here was the similar message that I was receiving:
"Could not start the CYGWIN inetd service on Local
Computer. Error 1053: The service did not respond to the
start or control request in a timely fashion." ...
Here's what I found to be the solution:
Make sure /usr/sbin (i.e. c:\cygwin\usr\sbin) is on
The inetd documentation in
/usr/doc/Cygwin/inetutils-1.3.2.README is excellent but I'm
not sure it is clear enough about the path requirements.
Corinna, would it be worth changing line 112 to something
- The Win32 Administrator's environment variable PATH
must contain the path to the directory which contains
the cygwin1.dll as well as the inetd.exe executable
(inetd.exe is usually installed to c:\cygwin\usr\sbin).
Please correct me if I've misunderstood anything; please
disregard if this issue has already been resolved.
