server attribute should not be necessary if redirect is present

You need to
before you can comment on or make changes to this bug.
The man-page for xinetd.conf says \'server\' attribute is always necessary for
a service. But if \'redirect\' is specified, then \'server\' is absolutely
The behaviour of xinetd corresponds to what is written: it doesn\'t accept a
service with \'redirect\' attribute and without a \'server\' attribute. If I
add a \'service\' attribute with some value, it accepts the service. (It would
be reasonable if it accepted such a service even without a useless \'server\'
Some previous version used to behave the way I\'d prefer.
I\'m not sure - the \'server\' attribute is used in libwrap checks,
so it is not absolutely useless.
Just comment: \'server\' is mean process name in the list of running processes
(ps ax|grep name) isn\'t it? \'redirect\' service can be controlled by \'only
from\' clause of xinetd.conf

No, server means program to execute for this service.
This attribute also used as service name in tcp_wrappers check.
Please have a look at xinetd-2.3.8-alt1
