Y2.001K bug? Check the permissions on /etc/resolv.conf. It should be 644 and not 640. Telnetd insists on doing a reverse DNS lookup on literally every connection (including local) and requires a DNS server. You can speed things up if the DNS server goes down by putting bogus entries for each of your remote machines in /etc/hosts for each of your pseudo ttys. The host names don't need to be real or even sane. I use like: 192.168.111.50 bogus50 bogus50.LearnByDestroying.com 192.168.111.51 bogus51 bogus51.LearnByDestroying.com 192.168.111.52 bogus52 bogus52.LearnByDestroying.com 192.168.111.53 bogus53 bogus53.LearnByDestroying.com 192.168.111.54 bogus54 bogus54.LearnByDestroying.com The "can't find terminal control database entry for line ttypxx" is unrelated. It means that you have more pseudo ttys configured than the [deleted explative] C2 security abomination has inscribed in its auth/ttys database.

If you're a poor attorney, I suggest a crash course in litigation, obfuscation, or whatever attorneys normally do, which should make you a better attorney. If you've been up for 76 days, I also suggest getting some sleep. -- Jeff Liebermann email@example.com 150 Felker St #D Santa Cruz CA 95060 831-421-6491 pager 831-429-1240 fax https://www.cruzio.com/~jeffl/sco/ SCO stuff

C++ is just an abomination. Everything is wrong with it in every way. So I really tried to avoid using that as much as I could and do everything in C at Netscape. (Jamie Zawinski)
