Hi all,

I am installing leafnode, a news feed server on FreeBSD 4=2E4=2E It tells me to a=
this line to the inet=2Econf=2E=20=

nntp stream tcp nowait news /usr/sbin/tcpd /usr/local/sbin/leafnode

I know that above line contains tabed info that correlates to the following
service name
socket type
server program
server program arguments

According to my entry I will be running the program /usr/sbin/tcpd passing the
arguments /usr/local/sbin/leafnode=2E

I have done this for now =3D=20=
nntp stream tcp nowait news /usr/local/sbin/leafnode

but was wondering what the equivalent /usr/sbin/tcpd is in freebsd as the
leafnode documentation warns I should only ever use tcpd ??
