: I've been trying to get INN set up, and when I run /usr/lib/news/etc/rc.news
: INN gives me the above message in syslog.conf. I've been through the docs
: over and over to no avail. Can anyone point me in the right direction?
Check out /etc/inetd.conf
The latest slackware distribution comes with it set up like this:
# If you want to read NNTP news via TERM, comment out the nntp
# line below, and use a command like this once the TERM
# connection is up: tredir 119 my.nntp.host:119
# You'll also want to do this: set NNTPSERVER my.nntp.host ; export NNTPSERVER
nntp stream tcp nowait root /usr/sbin/tcpd /usr/sbin/in.nntpd
and that's no goodski.
Comment out the nntp line, reboot, and see if INN likes things better.
