[DeleGate-En] endless loop accessing News
14 Feb 2001 13:28:01 GMT Steffen Kaiser <p4mbqbdyi-f4q452wae43r.ml@ml.delegate.org>


Hello,

I'm running delegate v6.1.22 on Debian Linux v2.2.17, news client PC-Pine
v4.33.

The command line is:

-P119 CMAP="/usr/local/sbin/sslway:FSV:*:{*:563}:*" SERVER=nntp \
MOUNT="= nntp://news.rrz.uni-koeln.de/ rw" \
MOUNT="= news://news.openwatcom.org" \
MOUNT="= nntps://secnews.netscape.com rw"

{{Delegate is cool, isn't it? Netscape told me their NewsGroups must be
read using their NewClient, hah! }}

Well, I don't know if the command line is the most sophisticated one, but
it works most of the time. After 2 or 3 days delegate enters an endless
loop and the logfile contains this:

===

The part between the two DO_INIT's repeats then.
During all the time the NewClient just displays "xxx seconds waited.
Still waiting for server reply ..." I can stop the client and re-initiate
the connection, but the error remains the same.
I have to restart the delegate News Proxy in order to get it to work
again, but then the client accepts the proxy (almost) immediately.

Is there something I can do, so the News proxy remains working?

Bye,
