Go read the inetd man page again, carefully.  I've never seen an inetd
that didn't have *some* way of adjusting the rate limit documented on
the man page.  Sometimes it's a command line option to inetd, other
times it's part of the entry in the config file.  And check that you're
really running inetd -- some systems use xinetd instead, in which case
you need to read its man page instead.
