TALKD(8C)                                                            TALKD(8C)



NAME
       talkd, in.talkd - server for talk program

SYNOPSIS
       /usr/etc/in.talkd

DESCRIPTION
       talkd  is  a server used by the talk(1) program.  It listens at the udp
       port indicated in the ``talk'' service  description;  see  services(5).
       The  actual conversation takes place on a tcp connection that is estab-
       lished by negotiation between the two machines involved.

SEE ALSO
       talk(1), services(5), inetd(8C)

BUGS
       The protocol is architecture dependent, and can not be relied  upon  to
       work between Sun systems and other machines.
