I have /etc/trn4/access.def readable and containing:
#NNTP Server = /etc/news/server
NNTP Server = nonesuch.none
Auth User = firstname.lastname@example.org
Auth Password = mypass
But trn4 seems to ignore the file. It seems that trn4 is looking
to /etc/news/server, always. If I put a bogus hostname
in access.def, trn looks to /etc/news/server; if /etc/news/server
is empty I get:
Connecting to /etc/news/server.../etc/news/server: Unknown host.
There is a /usr/share/trn4/access.def, but it is just a symlink to
