• JamNNTPd Ticket #6

    From Rick Christian@1:135/377 to All on Mon Oct 31 10:34:07 2016

    Hello everybody!

    Since I've not seen any comments or anything about the ticket I entered, #6, https://sourceforge.net/p/ftnapps/jamnntpd/tickets/6/

    This is a *possible* resolution...

    I can't test as I have no verified working JAM base setup to use, yet...

    So maybe some one can compile it and determine if Pan and KNode will then connect, since they won't now since the MODE READER command is not implemented.

    Basically just fake them out... since they STRICTLY follow the RFC and thus that command must work or they won't connect.. other NNTP clients may be more forgiving in this, but these ones are not. And in the case of PAN I am pretty sure they will say JamNNTPd is not compliant to the RFC's and won't workaround it. Hell they had some hissy fit over SSL libs...and now their SSL support is fubar'd.

    ===code===
    else if(stricmp(cmd,"MODE READER")==0)
    {
    socksendtext(&var,"200 Welcome to " SERVER_NAME " " SERVER_VERSION " (posting may or may not be allowed, try your luck)" CRLF);
    socksendtext(&var,"." CRLF);;
    }

    ~/jamnntpd_fix $ diff nntpserv.c nntpserv.c.orig
    3196,3200d3195
    < else if(stricmp(cmd,"MODE READER")==0)
    < {
    < socksendtext(&var,"200 Welcome to " SERVER_NAME " " SERVER_VERSION " (posting may or may not be allowed, try your luck)" CRLF);
    < socksendtext(&var,"." CRLF);;
    < }
