problems posting news
I can't find anthing in the docs about this, and I'm sure it's something
simple I've just overlooked...
When I post news from my machine, I get mail back with
inews: No valid newsgroups in misc.test
The setup is my local machine, with:
ii nntp 188.8.131.52-1 A NNTP server for use with C News.
ii inews 2.1-2 A replacement for the C News inews program.
ii cnews cr.g7-4 Simple News Server for Usenet news.
and I'm trying to send news to an nntp server.
Do I have to have an up-to-date /var/lib/news/active file? I guess I'd
rather that the server looked after all that, since I have no local
newsgroups (as yet...).
Any ideas what I've missed?
Thanks in advance.
