On my home machine running Slackware 3.5 (Linux 2.0.34) I can run
talk quite happily. However on my boss's machine running Linux
2.0.21 we get the message:
[Error on read from talk daemon : Connection refused (111)]
before it exits. On both machines (and I guess with practically
all Linux boxes) we run the
4.2 Berkeley Distribution April 22, 1991
version of talk. Any clues as to what's going wrong? ... or what
to look at? ... I wasn't terribly enlightened by the manpage.
I tried a few manipulations of the /etc/host* files without joy.
