It does explain a lot! The program thinks that the --inetd option you
specified is it's own name. For some reason it did not pick up that you specified
-i. Specifying -t to make it work actually only camouflages the fact that you
are now running from inetd in tunneled mode: this is *not* a good idea
because the connection is now marked as 'externally authenticated' meaning that no
extra authentication is needed. Could you show the inetd line which you used
to setup this configuration?
