Don't use inetd mode.  It is buggy and slow.

The "remote username" in the logs is set using HTTP authentication.  It has
nothing to do with the login name of the the user on the client computer.
If you want that, the only way I know is to use ident.  See


The official User-To-User support forum of the Apache HTTP Server Project.
