xinetd probleme

I have installed xinetd and vsftpd.
I can start xinetd perfectly but he doesn't seem to start vsftpd.
This is my xinetd.conf

instances = 60
log_type = SYSLOG authpriv info
log_on_success = HOST PID
log_on_failure = HOST
cps = 25 30

and here is my /etc/xinetd.d/vsftpd file

service ftp
socket_type = stream
wait = no
user = root
server = /usr/sbin/vsftpd
# server_args =
# log_on_success += DURATION USERID
# log_on_failure += USERID
nice = 10
disable = no

I'm sure the path is correct of the binary
Any help would be more then welcome

Just a suggestion... Try adding 'includedir /path/to/xinetd.d' to the bottom of the xinetd.conf file. According to the man page for xinetd.conf, includedir tells xinetd where your service config files are located.

Here's my /etc/xinetd.conf:

instances = 60
log_type = SYSLOG authpriv info
log_on_success = HOST PID
log_on_failure = HOST
cps = 25 30
disabled = swat ftp telnet

includedir /etc/xinetd.d

Make sure vsftpd.conf is in /etc/ not in /etc/vsftpd -- also make sure that listen=yes is commented out in vsftpd.conf
