Description Lucas Maneos 2004-12-12 06:56:57 EST

Description of problem:
(Component should be cyrus-imapd-nntp, but that is not listed at all
in the form.)

After upgrading to cyrus-imapd*-2.2.10-3.fc2, NNTP authentication no
longer works.  IMAP authentication still works as expected.

saslauthd runs with -a pam

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Connect to the NNTP service with a newsreader
2. Enter user & pass


Actual Results:  Authentication fails

Expected Results:  Successfull login

Additional info:

saslauthd logs:

DEBUG: auth_pam: pam_authenticate failed: Authentication failure


do_auth         : auth failure: [user=XXXX] [service=nntp] [realm=]
[mech=pam] [reason=PAM auth error]

nntpd logs:

badlogin: [...] plaintext XXXX SASL(-13): authentication failure:
checkpass failed

Could you try to "cp /etc/pam.d/news /etc/pam.d/nntp". Seems like the
pam service name has silently been changed recently.
Comment 2 Lucas Maneos 2004-12-18 02:25:12 EST
That worked, thanks!
Comment 3 Simon Matter 2004-12-18 06:00:51 EST
It's fixed now in the current Invoca rpm (cyrus-imapd-2.2.10-7). I'm
sure it will be fixed in the next RedHat/Fedora package too.

currently importing cyrus-imapd 2.2.10-11, this will show up in the
next fedora release, FC4
