creating a server programm via inetd

I've written a simple C server with the following functions
to create a socket and listen to a port:
socket -> bind -> accept -> recv

When I start the programm from a shell everything is working.
If I try to enter the port and the service call in the
/etc/services and /etc/inetd.conf the bind call returns
that the port is occupied. (I think i is the inetd)
What network functions do I need to make the inetd start my server ???

Thanks

inetd does socket(), bind() and accept() (if applicable) for you.
When your server is started, the socket is on its file descriptor 0, and you can recv() right away.
