Hello
I used "whereis" and "find" commands but cannot find inetd.conf file in Red Hat 7.3. Therefore, where I an add or delete services from internet daemon.
Thanks

Mike,
RedHat 7.3 uses a package called "xinetd" rather than "inetd". You'll want to look at the files in /etc/xinetd.d for examples of configuration. Each service gets it's own file.

It was originally /etc/inetd.conf. However, as James mentions, inetd has been supplanted by xinetd, which allows much finer control of spawned internet services.
For detailed info: http://www.xinetd.org
