I think you should restart your system instead

No... I think I find the way... use "/etc/rc.d/rc.inet1 restart"

Is that correct?

The stuff in /etc/rc.d are meant to run on system startup. You can't run them like that.

Yes, you can run them like that.

It's the way how you e.g. restart apache in Slackware or restart inetd after enabling / disabling a service in inetd.conf
