I'll take a look.
Comment 3 Daniel Ebdrup Jensen freebsd_committer 2019-09-22 13:44:27 UTC
I think this is a good example, but I do want to stress that I think it should include the phrase "for local connections only" since the rsync protocol provides no cryptographic protections against snooping on the data, and it's therefore better to pipe over ssh (or bbcp) when sending data over the internet.
Comment 4 Mateusz Piotrowski freebsd_committer 2020-06-08 00:19:57 UTC
Return the issue to the pool.

    inetd: Add examples from manual page and other sources

    The manual page lists a bunch of examples, some of which already exist
    in this file. Since it's both easier to remember when all examples are
    listed in the same location, move examples so they get installed into

    This also means users won't have to copy-paste, but can simply
    uncomment one or more services to use them.

    As such, it also becomes necessary to remove the examples from the
    manual page, so instead add a note explaining where the previous
    examples as well as others may be found.
    Cross-references, including to ports, have also been added where

    The rsync example has lived in the bug tracker for too long,
    considering how useful it can situationally be, for example when
    backup jobs on client devices are run through periodic(8) weekly.

    The microsoft-ds entry is necessary for Windows 10 compatibility
    (this can be confirmed with packet capturing, as it is not readily
    documented at time of writing).

    While here, remove two examples for which compatible daemons could not
    be found in ports.
