Well, it is already more then a month ago that I did the server
install ... but I know it was not easy to get that aspect to work.
It seemed that Ubuntu does not use inetd.conf
Than manual says
" If your system comes with something else than standard
inetd make install should have done the right thing already."
... but it not worked directly. I have installed xinetd and then run
the installer again. And then it worked.
I was wondering way the default gophermap did not display the config
path. That script assumes the config file is;
But it is;
Is that relevant maybe?

you'll get that name. As a security precaution you need to have a virtual host directory for your own
hostname or all of virtual hosting is disabled.
I could not find that in the documentation. If it is not there that
seems me useful to include it.

that is present. To be sure I have removed and created it again with
the command above; no change.

It is currently the host vermeir.dyndns.org because that is the one
updated by the router making the internetconnection and the most
The idea is that it is the primary one and others are virtual.

gopher server, right? Just place your content under /var/gopher and forget about vhosting....
Yes, that is an option. But "having need of it" is not a factor here.
I do not need to have any gopherserver, it is just for the fun of it.
I am going to put at gopher.wikizine.org the archive and current
edition of my newsletter - but I do not expect any visitors.
And because virtual hosting should be possible I would like to get it
working so I can setup other gophersapace stuff ...

Do you think like Brain indicated that the fact I use xinetd and not
inetd could be the problem? - I have only one external ipadress.
