TRN and Newsgroups

TRN and Newsgroups

Post by Blak » Sun, 13 Dec 1998 04:00:00

My ISP is using BSD 3.0.  I am trying to get familiar with UNIX.  I wanted
to try and join some newsgroups using TRN.  I type 'l' to get a listing,
then of course when I see something I want, then I cancel out of the listing
and type "gcomp.unix.questions".  Then I get this statement "Newsgroup
comp.unix.questions does not exist!"

Could my ISP limit this feature to its shell account users?




1. moderated newsgroup posting- trn can't find /etc/

i'm having difficulty posting to a moderated newsgroup using

then asks to send or abort, it chokes with this line:

Remote error: cannot open /etc/ No such file or directory

which is not true.  /etc/ is there, proper, set

the problem does not show up for non-moderated newsgroups (as you can
see), but only when Pnews has to submit through a moderated group's
mail address.  sendmail sends a test message correctly when invoked
from the command line, and from mailers like elm.

i'm using trn v3.6 (NNTP access), slackware v2.something.

any ideas?
