Hello everyone!

I´d like to feed my local INN with nntpget each time I connect to my ISP. So I
made this script that I placed in /etc/ppp/ip-up.d/

<---Begin of script--->
exec >> ${logfile} 2>&1
su - news -c "/usr/lib/news/bin/nntpget -o news.rwth-aachen.de"
<---End of script--->

It doesn´t seem to work and the only thing I get in the log file is:
Can't authenticate with (null), Illegal seek

What am I doing wrong?

Thanks in advance.
