Did you edit these? If so, why? What are you trying to acheive?

This suggests that sshd is running as a daemon. If that daemon
has port 22 open, when inetd tries to grab the port, it will fail.
You know you can't do both (use daemons and inetd) for the same
service (port), right?
I've not used FreeBSD 6 yet, but if it's anything like previous
versions ;-) then a look in
will tell you if sshd_enable is set positively - which means sshd
is running as a daemon, and should be disabled in inetd (comment
out the 'ssh' line for inetd and kill -HUP inetd).

Sorry, can't answer that. I suspect 476 is either the PID of
inetd or the offending line in the config file.
