finetd is an inetd-like Internet "superserver". It can listen for connections on any number of TCP/UDP ports or Unix path names, as defined by a configuration file. When a connection is made to one of these ports, finetd launches an application to handle the request. finetd supports IPv4, IPv6, and UNIX domain sockets. Stream, datagram (dgram), and seqpacket socket types are supported.
