More NT inetd questions

I have gnu-win up and running, and am trying to set up Sergey's remote
tools package. I have installed inetd as a service using srvany, and it
seems to start running ok - at least according to the "services" control

panel applet. It is running under a local account, "services" which is a

member of the "Users" group, but with permission added to allow: "Act as

part of operating system," "Replace a process level token," and
"Increase quotas." However, I can't seem to telnet into my machine. Even

using localhost, I get the following:

cwilson : BELGARION :  ~ > telnet localhost
Connected to
Escape character is '^]'.
Connection closed by foriegn host.
cwilson : BELGARION : ~ >

I get similar transcripts telnetting in from other machines. However, I
know that _something_ is running, because if I stop inetd from the
"services" control panel applet, the transcript looks like this:

cwilson : BELGARION :  ~ > telnet localhost
telnet: Unable to connect to remote host: error 111
cwilson : BELGARION : ~ >

Does anyone know what the problem is, and how to fix it?
