Description of Problem: talk sesson cannot be established between two users on 
a RedHat 7.3 system.  (procedure works correctly on other versions).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): RedHat Linux 7.3

How Reproducible: Login as different users on two virtual terminals and attempt 
to start a talk session.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. (As root) verify talk is turned on by issuing the command "chkconfig --list 
talk".  If not turned on enter the command "chkconfig talk on" to start. 
2. login to virtual terminal F1 as usera
3. login to virtual terminal F2 as userb
4. At virtual terminal F1, enter the command "talk userb" to start talk 

Actual Results:  You receive the response "Error on read from talkd daemon; 
Connection refused".

Expected Results: Screen split in two parts for talk session with userb.  Userb 
would have to respond to set up actual session operation (talk usera@linux01).

Additional Information:

You have to make sure that /etc/xinet.d/ntalk has disabled = no and that you do
a service xinetd restart.

It works perfectly for me here.

Read ya, Phil
