I was playing with something like this (using "keys" to point things
around), and getting the same error message as I used to the other day.

nntp.cifnet.net InterNetNews NNRP server INN 2.3.2 (20010316 prerelease) ready
(posting ok).
Your server does not have Xref: in its XOVER information.
Tin will try to use XHDR XREF instead (slows down things a bit).
Reading keymap file...
Reading input history file...

servers active-file contains no newsgroups. Exiting.

I changed hosts: "*" in auth: "admin" to more specific ip block, just to
check if I can pass through and get into "users" or "no password" classes
but I still got the same error...

telnet server nntp
list active

gives nothing :/

Any ideas? 

(I did grep on this sort of error, found soething similar in 
"Authentication blues" thread, looking into it right now).

Thank you kindly for your help,
