I'm not sure, but I think this is a problem with your client.

Can you try a different newsreader and see if you have the same issue?

This is related, but not the cause.

I doubt it's your ISP.

What happens if you try manually, then?  Telnet to port 119 of the news 
server, type DATE and press ENTER.

I want to be able to automatically create News Group with same Mailinglist
name .
I want to be able to have a user -based access to a particular news groups.

Thanks in advance!

buffindexed: overview data too large

Greetings,

I've been running an inn 2.4.2 usenet news server on a Solaris 9
system since 2004 without any issues.  I'm using cnfs and buffindexed
for the article storage and the overview.

For a little over a week now, I've been seeing the following errors in
my news_daily logs:

Unknown entries from news log file:
First 7 / 7 lines (100.0%)
Feb  3 00:02:40 news innd: [ID 584949 news.error] buffindexed: overview data is
too large 12733

The ID is always 584949 (this isn't a PID and couldn't find it in any the
other logs).

I've plenty of space for my overview.

Overview Buffer usage (inndf -o and inndf -n) :
12% overview space used
6731696 overview records stored

Can someone tell me what the error means and if there are any configuration
changes I can make so that innd will stop complaining.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

INN maintenance and facing reality

I really should have sent this message about a year ago, but I kept hoping
I would discover more free time.  However, this is looking increasingly
unlikely.

As everyone has noticed, there has not been a new release of INN in quite
some time, and I have not been doing any active development.  Due to a
combination of significantly load in my paying job (that isn't related to
Usenet) and other volunteer work, I've had essentially no time to work on
INN for quite a while now.  It doesn't look like this is going to change
in the near future.  As a result, I'm really not doing INN justice.  At a
minimum, a new INN STABLE release is overdue and INN 2.5 probably should
just be released as-is without all the other things that I wanted to put
in it.

Realistically, I don't have the time to continue as lead maintainer or
release manager, and haven't been filling either role for quite some time.
If someone else is willing to pick up the release management role, please
speak up.  I'm happy to help as I can find the time and will try to make
time to do a clean handoff.  I'm also happy to continue to provide
infrastructure, or ISC I'm sure is also willing to do so.

I'm hopefully not disappearing entirely, and I will continue to try to
comment on the list and do things for INN when I can, but I'll feel less
guilty and more realistic if I don't expect myself to maintain the level
of contribution that I have in the past.

Peter, please let whoever needs to know at ISC about this as well.

I have been at the same standpoint like Russ for over years
since I left my previous job.  I know not a few queries related
to buffindexed which I originally wrote were seen on the list,
but actually I did not have enough time to spare for that.

Re: INN maintenance and facing reality

Hi Russ,

Do not worry about that.

> INN 2.5 probably should just be released as-is without all the
> other things that I wanted to put in it.

Would it be possible to wait a little for that, at least until
some pending stuff has been stabilized?  For instance, correctly handling
checkgroups (updating the active and the newsgroups files accordingly,
if wanted) and allowing to specify the encoding of the newsgroups
file, as we already discussed here.  It would need some new options
to control.ctl, as well as a control.ctl.local file.  Therefore, if
INN 2.5 is not shipped with that, we would have to wait for INN 2.6,
wouldn't we?  Regarding internationalization, it is not very good...

The SSL implementation within nnrpd should also be looked at because
it is broken with Thunderbird and it is very annoying.  See
<https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=247226> for more details.
Fortunately, there is a patch from Kachun Lee which could be applied
but it is not a perfect solution.

There are probably other things to check.  But it is up to the release
manager to decide what he wishes to wait for.

I also have more work to do on documentation but I assume it can be
done after.  I also have to provide documentation about the setting up
of a UUCP feed, which we managed to do with Jeffrey some time ago.
