    inn help


    Hi, I'm just setting inn up as a local news server. I can create groups and read them on the server as localhost but I can't see them from client machines even through I have set the access to the ip range (eg 192.168.10.0/24). I can connect to the server, just not see any groups.

    Any thoughts to save me any more hours searching on the internet?

    Thanks,

    Nick

    further:

    if, from the server, I telnet to localhost 119 and issue the list command I can see the groups. If I telnet to the ip address of the server and issue the list command, nothing!

    Any ideas?

    *?

    Try setting the IP range to "*". without the " "'s im not sure if it supports Wildcard aka *'s but it should give it a try

    Sussed it:

    The IP range was specified correctly in readers.conf, what I had omitted to do was include R and P for Read and Post. Hence I could connect but not see anything.
