Description Jesper Skov 2000-08-06 08:14:04 EDT
Moving from my RH62 box to a new installation of RH70b, I found that
pullnews (from inn) fails to run:

thinktwice:> pullnews
Connecting to downstream host localhost...Cant connect to server localhost

I tried different versions of the perl libnet code, but it didn't make
a difference. First when I uninstalled perl-5.6.0 and installed perl-5.0.04
from RH62 did pullnews start to work again.

I don't know whether this is a perl, perl-libnet, or an inn problem.

When pullnews tries to connect to port 119 under the new perl, the call

connect(3, {sin_family=AF_INET, sin_port=htons(119),
.1")}}, 16) = -1 EINPROGRESS (Operation now in progress)

It looks like this under the old perl:

connect(3, {sin_family=AF_INET, sin_port=htons(119),
.1")}}, 16) = 0

Does this still happen with the latest builds?  A lot of networking stuff was
crapping out before Owen's fix for errno declarations got pulled in.

Uh, dunno. This is from an installation from the public ISO images.

If you tell me which RPMs to update (and where to get them from - URL), I
can give it a try.

Try http://people.redhat.com/nalin/test/ in the short-term.
