by any chance did you comment out any lines in /etc/services ? (someone thought
they could disable their ftp server by removing the line in /etc/services...
it stopped/broke the server and their ftp clients too (damn getservbyname! hardcode it!).
anytime you make changes to /etc/inetd.conf you need to restart inetd. quick
way to do it on a linux box is to run 'killall -HUP inetd'
