NNTP with linux Slackware

NNTP with linux Slackware

Post by Dimitri Vlahak » Thu, 09 Dec 1993 12:46:37

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

Dec  4 14:16:10 nnrpd[11801]: dcv.pipeline.com times user 0.350
system 0.220 elapsed 164.365

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,



1. TERM and NNTP on Linux Slackware

Has anyone out ther had any succes running NNTP over a term
connection?  I looked around for some info and have messed with Tredir
and trn and inews, but I can't get them to connect ot a newsserver
that is public.  I have alist of public newsservers, but it seems that
tredir wont run any connections that are outside the local net that I
run my host one.  But that one wont accept connections from me, or at
least it says it wont.  When I run inews thru a trdir port, what
hostname is passed along to the newsserver?  is it my local machine,
or tha machine that I piggy-back off of thru term?
