Need help with Leafnode/Netscape
I am unable to connect to my Leafnode server from my workstation
I an running a server system with Debian hamm and some slink packages
advised by security advisories and a workstation with hamm and some
slink packages including Netscape 4.06. I have installed and
configured Leafnode version 1.4 on my server system. When I try to
connect to it from my workstation system I get the following message
An error occurred with the News server.
If you are unable to connect again, contact the administrator for this
I find Leafnode itself running on the server by using "ps ax | grep
leaf*" which gives 3120 1 TWN 0.02 (leafnode). Fetch is working
since I have a file /var/lib/leafnode/groupinfo full of the group
names and there are syslog entries. There is an appropriate entry in
/etc/inetd.conf, nntp stream tcp nowait news /usr/sbin/tcpd
/usr/sbin/leafnode, and also entries in /etc/hosts.allow that was
added by the leafnode install.
Any help/suggestions are appreciated.
