  Well, I still believe that the default belongs first, because this is a
"last match" file. INN is consistent, all configs are either first match
or last match;-)

  I suggest that you start up an nnrpd daemon on an alternate port, with
trace enabled, and look in whatever log gets your news.debug output from
syslog. Mine is news/logs/news.trace for example. That should show you in
total detail what the validation is doing, and is how I changed mine from
not working to ungly but functional.

-- 1 --

  nnrpd -D -t -p1100

-- 2 --

  ( from remote host )
  telnet newshost 1100

Hope this gets you on the track...
