thank you for quick replying.
I read the page following the link you gave me. It addresses another problem.
When I run 'inetd' from command line (bash) all works fine. That means there is
not a configuration problem.
The key information is that 'inetd' refuses ALL incoming connections when
started as a service, no port is reachable.
I think there's a problem with 'accept' system call.
