talk not working with pl12/net-2, loopback only : network unreachable

talk not working with pl12/net-2, loopback only : network unreachable

Post by Michael E. Bra » Sun, 22 Aug 1993 21:09:56

I am running 0.99pl12 kernel with net-2's net-std, net-base and net-010.
All seem to be running properly - telnet, ftp, tftp to localhost are
working, localhost is perfectly ping-able etc etc. However, talk is not
working. After invoking talk, I get the following message:

[No connection yet]
[Error on write to talk daemon : Network is unreachable (101)]

Things that I checked:

- talk/ntalk is present in /etc/inetd.conf, /etc/services
- netstat -u shows ntalk/talk (though (STATE) field is empty...huh? tftp is
also shown in the same way though, but it works)

Any pointers on how to fix that?

1. "talk" won't work on loopback net-2 system

I'm trying to use the "talk" command on my home system.  I don't have a network
setup (yet), so all i am currently using is the loop back feature.

However, when I try to execute talk, I get an error message about the network
being unreachable.  yet, I can telnet to localhost. is this problem due to
not having a proper entry in my hosts file?
