$ rpm -q xinetd
xinetd-2.3.14-8

If you don't have it, yum for it.  It's possible that it was not installed
originally if you did not install any package that requires it.

Are you running something that listens on port 902?

$ grep 902 /etc/services
ideafarm-chat   902/tcp                         # IDEAFARM-CHAT
ideafarm-chat   902/udp                         # IDEAFARM-CHAT



ideafarm-chat   902/tcp                         # IDEAFARM-CHAT
ideafarm-chat   902/udp                         # IDEAFARM-CHAT

I've googled for a few minutes but I can't figure out exactly what
this ideafarm-chat does. I hope that it's not associated with
ideafarm.com as one post that I found suggests. In any case I don't
want it- I'll see if I can have the VMWare server replace it on 902.

[root localhost ~]# man ideafarm
