1. Debian-based distros use inetd instead of xinetd. SWAT package for debian puts a line into /etc/inetd.conf file, which is usually commented out. To use SWAT, you need to uncomment it.
2. No need to restart inetd or xinetd. Just find out the process number and then use kill -HUP on this process to reread configuration files. Or use killall -HUP inetd.
