    inetd.conf line:
    sane stream tcp nowait root /usr/sbin/tcpd saned

    I've also tried this one (saned group/user exist), I get the same

    sane stream tcp nowait saned.saned /usr/sbin/tcpd saned

    relevant messages in daemon.log:
    Jan 7 12:26:50 over saned[7808]: connect from
    Jan 7 12:26:50 over saned[7808]: access by damon@debian accepted
    Jan 7 12:26:51 over saned[7808]: exiting
