Hi Russ,

Thanks for your reply.

here is the entry which I made in my /etc/syslog.conf file

news.crit           /var/spool/news/log/news.crit
news.err            /var/spool/news/log/news.err
news.notice         /var/spool/news/log/news.notice

Yeahyou are correct log files are empty but I don't know what else entry I
need to make in /etc/syslog.conf file.

As far as messages and syslog of system i did't found anything wrong there.

I am running to run the inn.

Please guide me.

It sounds like the news server itself was never started and the only thing
that's running is nnrpd out of inetd.  Are you running at some
point to start the server?  If so, check the news log files, because innd
should be reporting its startup or reporting what's going wrong with
startup.  (If the log files are empty, syslog logging isn't set up
