I have been a user of AUB for years. Just installed FreeBSD 7.0 - AUB
fails to connect to NNTP Server. Runs okay on 6.3 machine - same
version of AUB 2.2..
at line 1494 is:
local($packing_template) = "S n a4 x8";
at line 1518 is:
$them = pack($packing_template, AF_INET, $port, $theiraddr);
This caused the problem because AF_INET is being set to a specific value.
Reference O'Reilly Programming Perl, 2nd Edition, Page 348/349 -
using their example
code (page 349) to test both 6.3 & 7.0 - example worked on both ( I
changed the 'localhost' to my news server, and port to 119.
I commented out line 1518 and added the following:
$them = sockaddr_in($port, $theiraddr);
I tested this on 6.3 and 7.0 - all okay now....
Hope this helps...
