vsftpd and xinetd problem


hi
i can't get vsftpd work with xinetd
it works fine as a standalone daemon, but when it is controlled by xinetd i can't connect to it and i don't know why

no error messages just : Connected to my.ip.address:21
Disconnected

any ideas?

thanks

I don't need to put anything in my hosts.allow file if I have tcp_wrappers=NO in my vsftpd.conf, do I?
or xinetd uses tcpwrappers?

Post your vsftpd scripts of xinetd .
cat /etc/xinetd.d/vsftpd

and run this command
netstat -nat|grep 21

ok here it is:
# default: on
# description:
# The vsftpd FTP server serves FTP connections. It uses
# normal, unencrypted usernames and passwords for authentication.
# vsftpd is designed to be secure.
service ftp
{
# port = 21
disable = no
socket_type = stream
wait = no
user = root
server = /usr/sbin/vsftpd
# server_args =
# log_on_success += DURATION USERID
# log_on_failure += USERID
nice = -5
}

and the netstat thing

[root@local root]# netstat -nat|grep 21
tcp 0 0 0.0.0.0:21 0.0.0.0:* LISTEN
