I am new to NNTPCache server. The compilation and installation went fine but I
am having little trouble understanding the configuration. The following is
some of the configuration from nntpcache.config file:
# the default policy is no access.
# the following line reverses this
# host patern group permissions filters userfiles
* * read,post
# whatever is not denied is permitted; we are now a woodstock access file.
# but hendrix is dead, and the world has moved into a new reign
# of conservatism. not so cool.
* * deny
# we are now a french legal system access file. users are guilty until
# proven innocent (mmmmmmmmmmmmmm. guilty users). Okay, okay it's
# the French legal system before la pr?somption d'innocence.
# credentials for internal nocem daemon
<nocem@nntpcache> * read,quick
# developers get full access to everything, regardless
# of what subsequent rules say
polysynaptic.iq.org * read,post,quick
# allow anyone from localhost to conncet to the web statistics port
localhost <http> read,quick
# full access for our local network
localhost * read,post,filter spam.filter
suburbia.net * read,post
The first line says the default policy is "no access" and yet it opens it up to
pretty much everything. The configuration says that the developers have full
access no matter what the configuration file says. Is this the developers
sick joke while documenting the configuration file or is it real?
According to the configuration.access file, there are a bunch of sites and
servers that can access the server. Although my iptables would limit that
access, is there lot careless access to the new servers these days?

My system developed exactly the same problem when I installed Redhat 9.0.
The LoadModule fails for various modules. When I further analyzed the
problem, I realized that the files containing these modules were getting
erased. Then, it hit me: The filesystem was corrupted. This was further
evident when I went into the directories containing the X Windows Files-
doing a grep there elicited I/O errors. I tried replacing them, but it
didn't work. And no, an fsck didn't help either.
All this inspite of the fact that I was using a _very_ new hardisk. I dont
think its the harddisk (it'd better not be- there are some vendor necks
that might get badly wrung if it is so)
I have been using Redhat Distros right frm 6.x. But none of them have
given me such probs.
How old is your hard-disk?
Anyway, for the present, if you want to proceed with your trial, use
Redhat 8.0 instead of 9.0, and see what happens. The Debian distros seem
to be better, but since you guys might end up using Linux for commercial
purposes (as opposed to hobby purposes,) I'd suggest you carry on with
Redhat (though admittedly, there might be an issue with RH 9.0). In the
meanwhile, I'll fish around and get in touch with other users on this and
other GLUGs, and on IRC hangouts, and see if any folks have this kind of a
prob. If yes, I'll package an error report and send it to out.
Other Gluggers- any comments? Have I missed out something in my line of
And yes- anybody with screwed up file systems on RH 9.0?

We are using Red Hat Linux version 9.0 personnel edition.
We have installed Custom-Everything on one of our PC on trial.
After every say two-three days, we have the following stated problem.
Only Re-Installing Linux 9 finds the solution to us. It do not upgrade as
We need Redhat 9.0 discs & are located in Andheri (W), Lokhandwala / Seven
We would like to have the installation discs and preferably also the
documentation discs. If there's anyone in the proximity of Andheri and could
lend us their set, we could copy the discs in a day and return.
Alternatively, if there is some person / firm selling the set at a
reasonable cost, we are willing to purchase.
