That indicates that the infrastructure is working correctly.  The error
should be self explanatory -- pserver doesn't have read permission for
the config file.  Is inetd running pserver as root?  If so, that implies
that your repository is NFS mounted, which is a very bad idea.  If not,
you'll have to map all users to whatever user pserver is running as
(which is also a bad idea) and adjust your repository permissions.
