fingerd seems broken! but i just installed it

Hello, I just installed cfingerd for debian using apt-get install cfingerd

It doesn't seem to work... the only output I get is:
from the server querying itself:
root@1[cfingerd]# finger jonk@localhost

from windows querying server:
C:\Documents and Settings\JonK>finger

> Finger: read::Connection reset by peer

For as much as I know... it should work!

I also checked for the following in inetd.conf
#:INFO: Info services
finger stream tcp nowait nobody /usr/sbin/tcpd /usr/sbin/in.fingerd
cfinger stream tcp nowait root /usr/sbin/tcpd /usr/sbin/cfingerd

I also kill -hup'd the inetd process to reload its settings...

Any idea what I've done wrong?

I use to have 'fingerd' installed but it's less secure/configurable than cfingerd... but fingerd seemed to work fine
