you can stop and restart any service run via 
XINETD there. You could consult the 
documentation for XINETD to get the 
command line syntax for this function, which 
I do not remember off the top of my head.

alone (under XINETD was the default in 
RH8; changed to stand-alone in RH9 for I 
cannot remember what reason). From what I

there, even the developers of VSFTPD 
recommend running the program under
