Tried it as above, when I try to subscibe in t'bird I get
A News (NNTP) error occurred: launchproxy : execv(): no such file
well, that is true as far as the program string line goes,
/usr/local/sbin does not exist, leafnode is in /opt/local/sbin, but if I
alter the plist to that value I get error connecting to localhost
and attempting to start the service I get bind: operation not permitted
any further thoughts?
