Description Gerald Teschl 2004-02-17 07:09:06 EST
Description of problem:
On one of our server spamd fails to start since its port is already
in use:

Feb 17 09:06:18 keen spamd: Could not create INET socket: Address
already in use IO::Socket::INET: Address already in use
Feb 17 09:06:18 keen spamassassin: spamd startup failed

This box runs a number of rpc services (nfs/yp) and I guess some
rpc service happens to choose the same port.


spamd           783/tcp                         # spamassassin

be added to /etc/services?
