You have to restart inetd to get it to re-read inetd.conf. The way I'd
suggest is to do '/etc/rc.d/inetd restart'.

You don't need to edit my.conf, but you do have to add permissions on
the database in question for your user from hosts other than localhost.
The table mysql.db is the one you're looking for. If you want your user
to have permissions from any host, use '%' for the Host column.
