innfeed error - more info

The feed I have set up between the two servers seems to be behaving oddly. I
have managed to stop the innfeed shutdowns ( which were some what mysterious
in nature, but innfeed appears to be functioning normally now). 

I am now getting an error at the command line:

ctlinndcat: /usr/local/news/run/LOCK.innwatch: No such file or directory

As far as I can tell this error coincides with innfeed trying to connect
with the other INN server.

Any insights would be greatly appreciated.

I am trying to set up a news feed between two inn servers running on Red Hat
Linux. I keep getting the following error message in the spooler /
new.notice files  of both servers:

monet innfeed[25355]: ME source lost . Exiting

(This example is pulled from the news.notice file of my monet server).

moya innfeed[30043]: ME source lost . Exiting

(This example is pulled from the spooler file on my moya server)

The feeds are not communicating with one and other and I am not sure what
there errors mean.
