SUMMARY: sshd in /etc/inetd.conf

I figured this out on my own, it seems I need an absolute path for
sshd -i (instead of just "sshd -i") probably the particular path is
not set.

On other note, a couple of suggestions mentioned the overhead of
sshd being spawn for each request causing high overhead.  Since I'm
running IP Filter and limited ssh connection, this is not an issue.
Furthermore, with the availability of memory and high-end servers
I wouldn't think this is an issue?  (ie.putting sshd in inetd.conf)

---------- original message ----------

I want to test out sshd being call from /etc/inetd.conf instead of
having sshd daemon running.  The below is what I have in inetd.conf,
nmap shows the port is open, but I can't seem to connect.  Anything
else I need to check or modify?  I have stop/start inetsvc and ssh
port is in /etc/services.  Thanks in advance.

ssh    stream  tcp     nowait  root    /usr/local/bin/sshd	sshd -i
