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:


# let everyone connect to you
vsftpd: ALL

# OR you can restrict it to a certain ip

# OR restrict for an IP range

# 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.

My addition about "PAM with 'virtual users'"

I don't even now if I've done it the right way, and its the first time ever I do something like this. Hence please give feedback on the quality of it, and let me know if I've done some mistakes.
