Hi All,

Since the new-ish (6 and 7) guides indicate that xinetd should be disabled, what is the preferred method for running VNC and TFTP sessions to a host?

The tftp-server package installs the /etc/xinetd.d/tftp file but could certainly drop an init script/systemd script with associated sysconfig file.

The VNC one is a bit more difficult since it gets difficult to have dynamic SSH-based terminals without something like xinetd (or, again, a highly configurable init script).

I know this falls under the "if you need it, use it" category but I was wondering if there were 'more compliant' alternatives that didn't involve epic amounts of work and/or maintenance and that stuck within the RHEL software stack.
