Ytalk/talk Error

Ytalk/talk Error

Post by Calvi » Wed, 17 Apr 1996 04:00:00



Hi All,

I am having a problem talking to outside users. When I use ytalk, it
gives me an error saying:

        ################################
        #         Ytalk Error          #
        #                              #
        #  find_daemon: recv() failed  #
        #      Connection refused      #
        #                              #
        #     sendit: recv () failed   #
        #      Connection refused      #

        #                              #
        #     sendit: recv () failed   #
        #      Connection refused      #
        ################################

With "talk", it keeps saying "Checking for invitation on caller's
machine". When someone tried to talk to me, I got the msg from the talkd
daemon, just that I can't reply to it. I have no problem whatsoever talking
to other users on the local host. I am connected using PPP with a dynamic IP
address, however, the address is listed in /etc/hosts.

I'd appreciate any help with regard to this problem. Thx.

 
 
 

1. "talk"/"ytalk" to Sun Solaris and AIX talk daemon

Hi!

The talk and ytalk program in my linux machines won't connect to the
talk daemon in my friends accounts in Solaris and AIX. The talk program
keep waiting for "invitation", and ytalk just say that there is no talk
daemon on the destination machine. Even if my friends initiate the talk,
I cannot talk back, although I received the invitation to talk to them.

I guess this is apparent from the man page of talk:

BUGS
The version of talk(1) released with 4.3BSD uses a protocol that is        
incompatible with the protocol used in the version released with 4.2BSD
(SunOS/Solaris uses this old protocol).

That's probably the reason with the AIX, and with ytalk, too.

Well, is there any talk / ytalk for Linux that can talk "the old ways"
to a Solaris or AIX machines?

Thanks.
