ftpd - getpeername: socket operation on non-socket

I'm running wu.ftp v2.6.0-3 on RedHat 6.0.  When I run the wu.ftpd from the command line as root I get the following error:
ftpd[xxx]: getpeername (wu.ftpd): Socket operation on a non-socket

I gather it's something to do with the ftpd trying to connect to stdout as a socket and failing.

Any ideas how to fix this?

Yeah, don't try to run it from the command line. Ftp is intended to be run as a daemon by inetd. The normal install should put a line in /etc/inetd.conf starting with "ftp".

I checked my init.d/inet script and it was trying to call ssd (?).  I could not find which rpm it was in so I copied it from another system.  All happy now.
Thanks.
