the pointers you're asking for are:

1. make sure that your inetd configures leafnode, check /etc/inetd.conf
for something like:

nntp   stream  tcp     nowait  news/40/60/4  /usr/local/sbin/leafnode leafnode

2. make sure that your system starts inetd, check the output of
ps ax | grep '[i]netd' - if it doesn't print a line containing inetd,
then your inetd isn't running. In that case, check /etc/rc.conf for an
"inetd_enable" line, it should resemble inetd_enable=YES. Because this
becomes effective only after the next reboot, run
/usr/sbin/inetd -wW manually to start it (unless you're about to reboot
