              Force server to run standalone

              Force server to act as service of inetd

              Print version information and exit.

       -sX    Lifetime for spawned services (in seconds) ex: -s25  maintain connections for up to
              25 seconds

       -mX    Spawn  no more than X children services at a time ex: -m15  service no more than 15
              requests at once.  Note: ignored if inetd service

       -pX    Use port X, default: 4224

       -n     Do not lookup addresses, use IP numbers instead


       Xtell daemon can run either from inetd(preferred) or from command line.  If you decide  to
       start it from inetd, add this line to /etc/services :

       xtell     4224/tcp            # xtell server

          and this line to /etc/inetd.conf :

       xtell     stream    tcp  nowait    nobody.tty     /usr/sbin/tcpd /usr/local/sbin/xtelld

       Notice  that  the  entries  are separated by tabs, not spaces.  Restart inetd with killall
       -HUP inetd

       What to do if you are a normal user and want to run xtell daemon:

       You can't run it from inetd, obviously. Just start ./xtelld to use xtell on  default  port
       (4224).  In  this  case, xtell can write messages only to you. If there is another user on
       that system willing to get messages, either s/he  starts  xtelld  on  another  port  (e.g.
       ./xtelld  -p4225),  or  makes  his/her  tty  writable  by  you  (e.g. chmod a+rw /dev/tty*
