I've run into another of those intractable-seeming problems that
always seem to wait a while before popping up. A friend of mine
logged into my box from berkeley, a few hours ago, and tried to ntalk.
I recieved no notice of his attempt; the only traces the attempt left
were in /var/adm/messages :
Mar 14 00:22:28 fitch_95jrn in.ntalkd: connect from localhost
and in /var/adm/syslog :
Mar 14 00:22:29 fitch_95jrn talkd: recv: Connection refused
Trying to ntalk to myself between 2 Xterms works, but none of the
usual "ntalk: connection requested..." messages appear anywhere; it
only works when I know in advance.
Any pointers to what to change (I grepped for 'talk' through /etc and
/var/adm/packages with no success) to get talk to work would be
