NAME

zserv - CERNLIB server program for transferring ZEBRA formatted files

DESCRIPTION

zserv is the server for the ZFTP file transfer program. It listens for connections on port 346. zserv is not in general run from the command line, but only via inetd(8).
Please note that, like many other FTP servers, zserv receives unencrypted passwords over the network. It should therefore be used only within a trusted LAN.

FILES

/etc/inetd.conf - specifies how inetd should call zserv
