Re: [leafnode-list] alpha-do-not-use-work-in-progress-release: 2.0b8_ma2.1-alpha (was: Post's don't show up!)
Ok. I am convinced I am doing something wrong! Post's still don't show up.
I hate to be such a pest here. Let me walk you through how I am setting
First I ./configure to configure leafnode for my system.
Next i do a make to compile leafnode
Then I make install to install leafnode.
After that I edit /etc/leafnode/config with just the following lines
server = localhost
expire = 9999
Then I create /etc/leafnode/local.groups and add the group
test.test test group
Now, from what I understand leafnode should be configured. I am using
xinetd and it's already configured to accept connections for
/usr/local/sbin/leafnode on port 119, as my xinetd config from earlier
shows. Just to be on the safe side i restart xinetd. Now Leafnode should
be ready to accept post's right? I move over to my windows machine and open
up outlook express. I setup a new news account and download a list of
newsgroups. It shows my test.test group with the description I have given
it. When I go to view that group it shows the one placeholder message. I
then go to post just a test post and hit send. The post goes away and I go
to get a list of new headers and my post does not show up! I can't find
that message i just sent anywhere in the /var/spool/news folder. And that
folder and subdirectories are owned by news. I am willing to allow someone
access to my machine to see if they can see where I have went wrong. I am
beginnin to feel like an idiot here =) Once again. Thanks for your help!
