-> Hmm. It's hard to imagine when you would want INN to listen on multiple
-> ports, really. I mean, some crazy thing like you have two network
-> interfaces and 119 is firewalled on one of them, I guess. I can't work up
-> much energy about this, though.
well, let's start with ipv4 and ipv6. for nnrpd, it can be also ssl and
-> There is some benefit to nnrpd on multiple ports (different
-> configurations, some with SSL some without, whatever). But I can't see as
-> it's a big problem just to have several nnrpd's listening (if you use
-> daemon mode; if not just configure inetd as appropriate), right?
Well, i don't think it's a problem, but i find it superflous. And also, i
got an idea about using shared memory for accessing active, overview etc,
which would probably spare cpu/time/memory/io, which would be much easier
with one nnrpd and its children.
so I'd like just put this as idea, recommendation, something into TODO list.
And probably talk about its pros/cons.
