Apologies for not sending this to the fwtk-users list, but I haven't
seen a single message over that in months. Is it dead?
For reference, the system in question is a FWTK 1.2/1.3 based bastion
host which serves as an Intranet firewall. Internet connectivity is
achieved via other means, on a more up-to-date, secure system. The
Intranet firewall is there mainly for policy and local user
I'm running into a problem where http-gw causes a "server failing
(looping), service terminated" message on my bastion host (SunOS
4.1.3_U1 with lotsa patches). The gateway isn't actually failing --
it's just running several instances in rapid succession. This usually
occurs on more "busy" pages, or when several users are hitting the
Intranet at the same time.
I must be successfully killing lots of brain cells these days, because
for the life of me I can't determine how to tweak inetd so that it
doesn't complain and stop the service. The only way to restore HTTP
service after I get this message is the "kill -1" the inetd process.
Please email if you have any suggestions.
