Hi,

The problem is that some other daemon is already listening to port 119, the tcp port used for NNTP. Probably it's the standard NNTP server that came with your distribution. It is started from inetd, so you should look for a line in your /etc/inetd.conf that looks like

nntp   stream  tcp     nowait  root   /usr/lib/news/etc/in.nnrpd

and put a '#' in front of it. After that, send your inetd the HUP signal:

ps ax | grep inetd (gives you the inetd PID)

followed by:

kill -HUP <inetd PID>

to make inetd re-read it's config file.
