talk & ntalk

Hi all,

I'm sorry if this is a FAQ, but I couldn't find it ... I have problem with  
the talk command. From my Debian 1.3 laptop, there is no way to talk to 
somebody else. I tried on a SunOS, on another Linux box (slackware) but with 
no luck: the talk sits with a Checking for invitation on a caller's machine.

If from the SunOS/Slackware box I do a talk to my machine, same problem, but 
if I do a ntalk I got the message on my Debian machine, but I cannot answer (I 
guess that ytalk/talk does not understand the ntalk protocol).

So what am I missing? What am I doing wrong?
