Ah. The LISTEN port is set in your xinetd configuration, for instance
(assuming a recent xinetd version, such as 2.3.12):

service leafnode
        type            = UNLISTED
        socket_type     = stream
        protocol        = tcp
        wait            = no
        user            = news
        port            = 9119
        server          = /usr/local/sbin/leafnode

The "type = UNLISTED" line tells xinetd to not go looking for the
service in /etc/services, I assume you're familiar with the other

Yup, the "port" lines are for the "fetchnews" client.

Thanks for your follow-up.
