[leafnode-list] connection refused

Hi there,

I think, you've read some other messages too dealing with the same thing.
Sorry for this (long) message. But I didn't find any entry matching my
problem in the archive or in the FAQ.

I installed leafnode 1.9.18 on SuSE 7.1 and followed the installation
instructions :

1. sh ./configure
2. make
3. make install
4. copied /etc/leafnode/config.example to /etc/leafnode/config and added my
News-Server with my Account-Information
5. added nntp stream tcp nowait news /usr/sbin/tcpd /usr/local/sbin/leafnode
to /etc/inetd.conf
6. added leafnode: to /etc/hosts.allow
7. added leafnode: ALL to /etc/hosts.deny
8. added localhost to /etc/nntpserver
9. added export NNTPSERVER=localhost to /etc/profile

After rebooting and running fetchnews -vvv (which reported no errors) tin
showed no newsgroups and Netscape complained about a missing NewsServer (I
edited my NewsServer to localhost); so I looked up the FAQ :

A. ps axu | grep inetd resulted in
   root       583  0.0  0.4  1280  552 ?        S    11:01   0:00
   root       774  0.0  0.4  1492  552 pts/2    S    11:03   0:00 grep inetd

I'm not sure, but I think that's ok.

B. inetd -d resulted in
   ADD: nntp proto=tcp, wait.max=0.256 user:group=news.wheel builtin=0

I think also that's right

C. telnet localhost 119 resulted in
   Trying ::1...
   telnet: connect to address ::1: Connection refused
   Connected to localhost.
   Escape character is '^]'.
   Connection closed by foreign host.

I know, that's wrong. I didn't find any corresponding entry in
/var/log/messages (/var/log/syslog is not available)
I tried to kill 583 (see A.) but nothing changed. The owner of
/etc/leafnode/config is news; so that's also ok.

Any idea what to do ?
