Description David Woodhouse 2005-02-11 03:20:54 EST
Since upgrading to Evolution 2.1.5 I can no longer connect to my local news
server. Authentication is purely by the connecting IP address; the client isn't
required to authe nticate. But Evolution insists on trying. I enter no username
and it still asks for a password. Hitting cancel prevents it connecting, hitting
OK causes it to give bogus login attempts...

NNTP_STREAM_LINE(77): '200 news.aaisp.net.uk NNRP Service Ready -
support@aaisp.net.uk (posting ok).'
NNTP_COMMAND: 'authinfo user '
NNTP_STREAM_LINE(27): '501 user Name|pass Password'
NNTP_COMMAND: 'authinfo user '
NNTP_STREAM_LINE(27): '501 user Name|pass Password'
NNTP_COMMAND: 'authinfo user '
NNTP_STREAM_LINE(27): '501 user Name|pass Password'

This affects 2.0.4-1 in FC3 updates-testing too.
Comment 2 Pedro Fernandes Macedo 2005-03-31 13:38:07 EST
this bug still exists on evolution evolution-2.0.4-2 on FC3 updates-released
i386 (I'm gonna test on x86_64 later). 

Same thing that happens to David. Server authentication is made by IP and
evolution always tries to authenticate. A ethereal dump shows the same stuff.
(dumps of evolution and thunderbird are available if needed , but it's basically
the same stuff that david posted).

You can work around this issue by going into gconf-editor, and editing
apps/evolution/mail/accounts, and in the entry for the news account, remove the
'@' from the nntp:// url.
Comment 4 David Woodhouse 2005-04-21 09:20:14 EDT
When rebuilding my own evolution-data-server package to fix this and also bug
#147780, bug #151121 and the one about it checking for mail even in inactive
folders, I found that this seems to have been fixed already. Closing accordingly.
