I'm having difficulty getting vsftp to work (Redhat .

I don't think that, when I start the xinetd dameon, vsftp starts up correctly.

My xinetd.conf looks like this:

enabled = imap vsftp
instances = 60
# Enabling this logs to messages log file
#log_type = SYSLOG authpriv
log_type = FILE /var/log/xinetd
log_on_success = HOST PID
log_on_failure = HOST
cps = 25 30

includedir /etc/xinetd.d

and my vsftp conf file looks like this:

service ftp
disable = no
socket_type = stream
wait = no
user = root
server = /usr/sbin/vsftpd
nice = 10

However, when I (re)start vsftp:
> service xinetd restart

and then use netstat to see what services are running
> netstat --inet -a

I cann't see any activity on port 21, which I would have expected. (although the IMAP service which is configured seems to start up fine)

Also, if I look in /etc/var/messages i see the following:
Dec 6 12:58:18 pepper xinetd[8520]: Started working: 1 available service
(So only one service - IMAP- started, where I would expect 2)

Thanks in advance,
