I have one server (server1) for receiving & sending articles to upstream
news provider & to store all the articles.
I have two reader servers & I have configured them to mount the
/usr/local/news & var/spool/news volumes from the server1.
Do anybody know how to configure this two servers as reader servers?
(I am using Redhat 7.2 to with INN 2.3.3)
I have copied the nnrpd file from /usr/local/news/bin to /usr/local/etc &
created a file "nntp" under /etc/xinetd.d with the following contents:
socket_type = stream
protocol = tcp
wait = no
user = news
server = /usr/local/etc/nnrpd
server_args = -D
disable = no
I restartted the xinetd but I am not able to telnet to 119 port.
What is server_args I have to put. In INN 1.7.2 we put -S followed by fully
qualified domain name of the innd server.
Also is putting the following line in syslog.conf & restarting the syslogd
daemon is enough to activate the logging?
# INN News
Thanks & regards
