(if I'm linking the original question to a "Connection refused"
message right) - you get "Connecion refused" when the machine is
reachable and functional, but there is nobody listening on that
particular port.

Ping uses ICMP-ECHO packets.  So you can get "elvis is alive" while
elvis has just configured the network card but before anything is
running.  That would comply with the "connection refused" message too.

Just make sure your inetd is running, take a look at your inetd.conf
file and return to us.
