rshd vs 5.4

Trying to connect to my new backup server running 5.4 using rsh fails.

It worked well on my old backup server running 4.7 P25.

inetd.conf has the /usr/libexec/rshd line un-commented.

hosts.allow permits the remote host to connect to rshd.

The rsh file in /etc/pam.d has been patched by hand and looks good.

The message I am getting after some timeout period is:
 Connection refused

It appears that inetd, which is running by the way, is not starting  

Can anyone give me a pointer or two to get this thing working?
