I have tried auth configurations given at site:

This site gives readers.conf like this:

auth "passwords" { 
hosts: "*" 
key: "pwd" 
auth: "check_password nntp" 

access "passwords" { 
key: "pwd" 
newsgroups: "*,!local.newstest,!control*,!junk" 
access: "Read Post" 

When I do this, I get, in log/news.err:

SERVER: bad_newsfeeds no feeding sites

I don't understand this error. I don't have any feeding sites. None are listed in my newsfeeds file, except ME: When I use this 
readers.conf, I don't even get a logon prompt. Does this require an entry in the passwd.nntp file?
