aye? I'm not too furmilliar with xinetd, are you sure it would show under ftpd, and not xinet or something? anyway, the best way to check would be to telnet 21, and see if you get connected, if's not running..if that's the case look over your vsftpd configuration, I use proftpd, which has a option to either run standalone, or with inetd..if vsftpd has the same option perhaps you should make sure its set on xinetd.

well running it as standalone isn't suggested since it runs under port 1024, it'd have to be ran as root..anyway, yeah..I would think you'd just type `vsftpd` at the command line to start the server, (in stand-alone mode) what was in your xinetd file anyway (the /etc/xinet.d/vsftpd) that's suppose to hold information about the program (executable name, what port it listens on, etc, etc, etc)
