What is the advantage of using the xinitd approach over adding vsftpd to the Daemon list?

And also, # pacman -S xinitd xinitd: not found in sync db

What is xinitd?



Could one add a column that explains the security in /etc/hosts.allow like there is in the ssh wiki page:

/etc/hosts.allow

# let everyone connect to you
vsftpd: ALL

# OR you can restrict it to a certain ip
vsftpd: 192.168.0.1

# OR restrict for an IP range
vsftpd: 10.0.0.0/255.255.255.0

# OR restrict for an IP match
vsftpd: 192.168.1.

/etc/hosts.allow / deny

Starting vsftpd from xinetd and solo tells me that the /etc/hosts.allow / deny are only used when the vsftpd is started from xinetd.
