ntalk: talk: ntalk/udp: service is not registered

ntalk: talk: ntalk/udp: service is not registered

Post by Douglas Sto » Wed, 11 Dec 1996 04:00:00



I know, this is a FAQ but I have followed the procedures and still get
the error "talk: ntalk/udp: service is not registered".

This is on an Ultra Sparc running Solaris 2.5

I compiled ntalk and ntalkd.  Inserted:

ntalk       518/udp

in /etc/services.  I added:

ntalk   dgram   udp wait    root    /usr/local/etc/in.ntalkd in.ntalkd

in /etc/inetd.conf.  Then I kill -HUP PID of inetd.  Type ntalk
<username> and get

talk: ntalk/udp: service is not registered.

Any help would be appreciated!

Wild guess: You run NIS+.  Look in /etc/nsswitch.conf for the search
order on services.  If it is the default, then your change to
/etc/services will not be seen.  Either change /etc/nsswitch.conf, or
add your change to the NIS+ services.

1. ntalk installation ntalk/udp service isnot registered

WE are installing ntalk.

I keep getting error message:
talk ntalk/udp service is not registered

What does this mean.

I added this to /etc/services
ntalk   dgram   udp     wait    root    /opt/local/common/etc/ntalkd   ntalkd

and restarted inetd???

Also, where is the official release for sources and /or Solaris 2.4
binaries for this.
