: Has anyone ported the NNTP - package (nntpd, xrn, rrn) to Linux ?

I have nntpd 1.5.11 + all the tin extensions running on 0.99p6.

I can xfer news but reading always returns 0's for the GROUP
command. Just have to find some free time to track that one down.

1. NNTP with linux Slackware

I've been trying to connect to an NNTP server using slip, and
I'm having no luck.  I can connect to a public server
(news.ucdavis.edu) but my server chokes on me for some reason.  
I've used tin that comes with slackware 1.1.0, as well as
xvnews and trn 3.3. -- none have worked.  

I can use access my service's news from two ms-dos winsock
compatible NNTP news readers with no problems.  Judging from
the news server's log file I'm sending requests which aren't
recognized, but I don't know if the problem lies with my linux
box or the sun server.  Anybody have any ideas?

This is the log....

Dec  4 14:13:26 nnrpd[11801]: dcv.pipeline.com connect

These are the problem requests (I guess)...

Dec  4 14:13:27 nnrpd[11801]: dcv.pipeline.com unrecognized

Also, can anybody point me to a faq or man for
smail/sendmail/inn.  I need to set up mail service/news posting
as well.

thanks in advance,
