In my Linux system FTP server is running from xinetd . I want to make a configuration change inside the /etc/xinetd.d/ directory for the FTP server launch with respect to the arguments passed to the FTP server .

So for this change do I have to restart the xinetd service ?

Also if I restart the xinetd service ,does it make any issues to the currently active FTP connections to the server ?

    No, restarting xinetd doesn't impact any current sessions. It forks a new process for each connection, and they continue independently of the original xinetd process. – Barmar Jan 19 '17 at 20:36
