Got interrupted and missed a fragment:

As noted, a bunch of the old "really cool in 1983" protocols like echo
(port 7), discard  (8), daytime (13), or the coolest of them all in 1983,
chargen (19) are provided by inetd itself as opposed to calling an 
application to service the request.  You can see which ones on a Solaris 
box by looking for "internal" on the rows for those services.

Telnet to these ports on a Solaris box, especially one that doesn't have 
Solaris 10, and you can see the wild and wonderful things they generate.



Better.  :-)
