sshd and ftpd run as daemons
smtp (exim) is started form inetd
I did install apache and samba form some test (running as daemon).
After running some tests, I found out I had to start the daemons first on the
host server and afterwards on the vservers. This runs fine.
If a daemon is running in the vserver, it can't be started on the host server.
(at least for apache and samba)

sshd, ftpd, samba and apache as daemon
and smtpd form inetd.

No. Debian uses it own style of startup scripts for daemons, the sysvwrapper
scripts from the vserver utils package don't work.

Yes. I am checking it out on vs 1.20 while I write this mail
(I will check it out on vs1.00 later)

On vs1.20 it's running fine now, it dit work on vs1.00 as well

yes (I'm testing it now on vs-1.20)

all :-) Running vs1.22 I have to bind ssh, smtp and ftp on the host server to
the IP of the host server. Otherwise I can't login on the daemons of the

I don't get it what's going on here.
Contact me in case you need a login on my testbox. It's located behind a
firewall, but I can move it to a DMZ zone of our network.

Thanks for your help,
