Hello Julien :)

speaking about SSL, how can turn on nnrpd with -S and -p 563 when using a
distribution rpm (CentOS5.1) with /etc/init.d/innd script (which seems to
calls script).
Is there a way to configure it through config files in /etc , or need to
change something for nnrpd, i have check init.d scripts and they do not
contain any mentioning about nnrpd.
