can't connect to VNC server started by xinetd


I've setup several VNC services to run on xinetd, they're supposed to connect to XDMCP on localhost so that they use GDM. However, when I try to connect to a server started by xinetd, I get this
Code:
andymadigan@andydeb:~$ xvncviewer localhost:1
VNC viewer version 3.3.7 - built Jul 18 2003 16:45:54
Copyright (C) 2002-2003 RealVNC Ltd.
Copyright (C) 1994-2000 AT&T Laboratories Cambridge.
See http://www.realvnc.com for information on VNC.
ReadFromRFBServer: rdr::EndOfStream
but when I issue the command vncserver :10 -query 127.0.0.1, can connect to it, any ideas?

Note: Here are my lines in /etc/inetd.conf:
Code:
tsclient640 stream tcp nowait nobody /usr/bin/Xvnc Xvnc -inetd :1 -query 127.0.0.1 -geometry 640x480 -depth 8 -securitytypes=none
tsclient800 stream tcp nowait nobody /usr/bin/Xvnc Xvnc -inetd :2 -query 127.0.0.1 -geometry 800x600 -depth 16 -securitytypes=none
tsclient1024 stream tcp nowait nobody /usr/bin/Xvnc Xvnc -inetd :3 -query 127.0.0.1 -geometry 1024x768 -depth 24 -securitytypes=none
radmin800 stream tcp nowait nobody /usr/bin/Xvnc Xvnc -inetd :4 -query 127.0.0.1 -geometry 800x600 -depth 16 -securitytypes=none
radmin1024 stream tcp nowait nobody /usr/bin/Xvnc Xvnc -inetd :5 -query 127.0.0.1 -geometry 1024x768 -depth 24 -securitytypes=none
and /etc/services
Code:
tsclient640	5901/tcp	
tsclient800 	5902/tcp	
tsclient1024 	5903/tcp	
radmin800	5904/tcp
radmin1024	5905/tcp

suggestion

You have to set the vnc password before the server becomes accessible. Was this done?

yes

yes, I ran vncpasswd before doing any of this, but --securitytypes=none is supposed to disable password checking.

update

tried removing --securitytypes, still no luck, does anybody know why this is happening, is there another way I can set this up? Has anybody found a debian package for RealVNC 4.0?
