This package browser is in early development. Mind the rough edges.


Internet services daemon

xinetd, a more secure replacement for inetd, listens for incoming requests over a network and launches the appropriate service for that request. Requests are made using port numbers as identifiers and xinetd usually launches another daemon to handle the request. It can be used to start services with both privileged and non-privileged port numbers.


Install xinetd as follows:

guix install xinetd@

Or install the latest version:

guix install xinetd

You can also install packages in augmented, pure or containerized environments for development or simply to try them out without polluting your user profile. See the guix shell documentation for more information.
