32 <para>The <application>Inetutils</application> package contains network
33 clients and servers. If you are building on an LFS platform, this package
34 was installed during LFS and only the clients (telnet, ftp, etc.) were
35 installed. These instructions allow you to install the server programs.
36 Note that most of the <application>Inetutils</application> servers are
37 insecure and should only be used on trusted networks.</para>

107 <para><parameter>--disable-logger</parameter>: This switch prevents
108 <application>Inetutils</application> installing a <command>logger</command>
109 program, which is installed in the LFS book.</para>
110
111 <para><parameter>--disable-syslogd</parameter>: This switch prevents
112 <application>Inetutils</application> installing a system log daemon, which is
113 installed in the LFS book.</para>
114
115 <para><option>--disable-whois</option>: This switch prevents
116 <application>Inetutils</application> installing an outdated
117 <command>whois</command> client. Add this option if you plan on installing
118 <xref linkend="whois"/>.</para>
119
120 <para><option>--disable-ifconfig</option>: This switch prevents
121 <application>Inetutils</application> from installing an
122 <command>ifconfig</command> command. Use this parameter if you have
123 <application>Net-Tools</application> installed and wish to keep its version
124 of <command>ifconfig</command>.</para>
125
126 <para><option>--disable-hostname</option>: This switch prevents
127 <application>Inetutils</application> from installing a
128 <command>hostname</command> command. Use this parameter if you have
129 the version of this program supplied by the either the
130 <application>Coreutils</application> package or the
131 <application>Net-Tools</application> package and wish to keep it.</para>
132
133 <para><parameter>--disable-clients</parameter>: This switch prevents
134 <application>Inetutils</application> installing any of the client programs
135 (most of which were build during LFS) and only installs the server
136 programs.</para>
137
138 <para><option>--with-wrap</option>: This switch makes
139 <application>Inetutils</application> compile against
140 <application>tcp-wrappers</application>. Add this option if you want to
141 utilize <application>tcp-wrappers</application>.</para>
142
143 <para><option>--with-pam</option>: This switch makes
144 <application>Inetutils</application> link against
145 <application>Linux-PAM</application> libraries.
146 Add this option if you want to utilize PAM.</para>
147
148 <para><option>--disable-servers</option>: Some of the servers included with
149 <application>Inetutils</application> are insecure in nature and in some cases
150 better alternatives exist. You can choose this switch to enable only the
151 servers you need, avoiding the installation of unneeded servers.</para>
