pretty generous for my little office, did it

No. But I do see this on /var/log/messages
inetd: start: No such file or directory
I assumed it was running because it showed up in top and ps -ax, but I
guess it really didn't because of this failure on attempting to start?
Yet I can ssh into the box, and sftp in too. None of which shows on the
/var/log/messages -- I guess because inetd isn't running; now I can see
sshd and sftp-server running on `top`.

# cat /etc/rc.conf|fgrep secure
# cat /etc/rc.conf | fgrep firewall
# cat /etc/hosts.allow | fgrep ftp
# Provide a small amount of protection for ftpd
ftpd : localhost : allow
ftpd : .nice.guy.example.com : allow
ftpd : .evil.cracker.example.com : deny
ftpd : ALL : allow
So does the problem appear to be that inetd isn't able to start? Why is it
that I get so totally lost before finding out where I'm going? :)
