According to Joe Smith:
>What is the loss of disabling echo? Or discard for that matter.
For an internet machine, not much I suppose but if you are running a
Sun shop and remove discard from your boot server then do not expect
your Sun diskless clients to reboot from power-up. We had this
problem a while ago and it was driving me nuts, the discard service
was commented out for another bit of software to run. Suddenly we
could not get our diskless clients to boot when they were turned on.
They would just hang, getting nowhere, if you interrupted the hang and
type boot they would come up ok. Putting the discard service back
into the inet.conf fixed the problem.
