Re: [leafnode-list] Newbie with leafnode problems

It seems as though Leafnode is running, but not picking up a list of 
newsgroups, i.e. your problem is not with the ISP. You should have a file 
called "groupinfo" in /var/spool/news/leaf.node, containing a list of 
newsgroups, but if your maximum connection time is 5 seconds, it will 
probably be empty. Try adding the line "debugmode=1" to /etc/leafnode/config, 
then run leafnode again and look at the logfile somewhere in /var/log/news.  

If your "groupinfo" file is full, you need to select newsgroups with your 
newsreader AND read the dummy placeholder article for each.
