Earthlink news server stalls w/RH4.0
Posted on 1997-02-23
My ISP is Earthlink, and I am having trouble downloading news after I upgraded to RedHat 4.0. Earthlink provides an NNTP server so normally I use Netscape and give it the name of the server.
After I upgraded to RedHat 4.0 Netscape will stall when a choose a newsgroup to peruse, although it is able to determine the number of messages available. This looks just like gridlock to me, except when I use W95 to do this everything works fine. So, of course this makes me think that I have not setup my Linux system correctly.
I did start innd and sendmail, just in case, but that didn't have any effect. Everything else, web browsing and e-mail works fine.
This is a repost of a previous question, titled "news", but with a more descriptive title. Also, I have upgraded it to "hard".
Thanks in advance for your help
