After removing the server_args, I am able to connect to telnet to port 119 &
I am able to subscribe to
the news groups & view the articles.

No. I am not able to see any log messages in news.notice.
By I can see the entries in /var/log/messages file.

Also now I am not able to post new articles though this reader server while
I am able to post through the innd server.
The message did not appear in the reader software even after 3 hour.
But /var/log/messages file says  "post ok".


" 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.

I have copied the nnrpd file from /usr/local/news/bin to /usr/local/etc."

Also My /var/log/messages file shows the following:

nnrpd[1596]: post ok <abrddq$1hs$1 at localhost.localdomain>

Why the my domain name is not there.

I did not put any thing for nnrpdposthost: in inn.conf.

Do I have to copy innwatch also into /usr/local/etc directory?

Thanks & regards
