SUMMARY: pop3 servers

Date: Fri Mar 29 1996 - 15:36:27 CST

Here's my original question:

> Does anyone know how to build & install the POP 3 (Post Office Protocol 3 > server on a system running Solaris 2.4 and another system running
> SunOS 4.1.3?

1. Modified /etc/inetd.conf as follows:

pop-2 stream tcp nowait root /usr/local/lib/popper popper
pop-3 stream tcp nowait root /usr/local/lib/popper popper

Note: You can put the popper program in other places than /usr/local/lib

2. Mofified /etc/services as follows:

pop-2 109/tcp # Post Office
pop-3 110/tcp # Post Office

3. Then do a `kill -HUP pid_of_inetd_daemon`.

That's it.

Thanks for all the people who helped me out.
