The link is now updated.

Superserver doesn't use xinetd.

However, if (as you said above) you can connect "locally" (which, for
SS on Linux means ONLY via the TCP/IP local loopback server) then you
should be able to connect remotely. The installation makes port 3050
the default port so you don't have to configure it unless you need to
change it.

You say "it doesn't seem to react". Are you not receiving any error messages?
