    when you run finger, do you run it from the same system or from a remote one?

    i am currently running from the same system

    for e.g FINGER      Must be disabled if not required to support an application

    To check inetd's status, simply use
    lssrc -ls inetd
    It will show you details about inetd and all its active services.

    You can do extra check using netstat -an
    It could be case someone disabled trivial services and did not restart inetd.
