This seems to indicate that xinetd was not running on your machine.

I'm sorry, what is fine?

I don't recommend copying an archive file to /etc/xinetd.d.  It is much better
to get the ADDE installation process working correctly.

The xinet startup script is located in /etc/init.d:

$ ls -alt /etc/init.d/xinetd
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 2497 Feb 12 13:02 /etc/init.d/xinetd*

xinetd can be restarted as 'root' using:

/etc/init.d/xinetd start

The ADDE setup script, /home/mcidas/mcinet2005.sh, appeared to fail because
xinetd was not running.  Once you get it running (see above), you should rerun
the uninstall and install process as I outlined previously.

After the ADDE setup script has run properly, the next thing to look
into is allowing access through port 112.  I can see that access is
allowed through ports 500 and 503 using telnet:

<from a unidata.ucar.edu machine>

% telnet weather2.admin.niu.edu 500
Connected to weather2.admin.niu.edu (
Escape character is '^]'.

% telnet weather2.admin.niu.edu 503
Connected to weather2.admin.niu.edu (
Escape character is '^]'.

But I am not able to connect when using port 112:

% telnet weather2.admin.niu.edu 112
telnet: connect to address Connection refused
telnet: Unable to connect to remote host: Connection refused

This is a firewall or /etc/hosts.allow configuration that needs
to be changed for users of current McIDAS-X installation to be
able to use your ADDE server.
