Greetings Stephen,
	You need to add conserver to your /etc/services file (or wherever
MacOSX keeps it...)  That error means that it can't find the port number to
use for the conserver service.
	I hope that this helps,

Subject: macosx 10.2.1, getservbyname: conserver: Undefined error: 0

I installed conserver 7.2.4 on macosx 10.2.1.  After installation I had to
add /usr/local/sbin to my PATH and to the conserver.rc script.

My goal is to communicate to an external serial device operating at 9600
bps, one stop, no parity, no handshaking.  The device is connected through
the USB serial port at /dev/tty.USA19QW11P1.

I am getting the following error when starting up:

  conserver: getservbyname: conserver: Undefined error: 0

I have included below the output from conserver -V, and the files conserver
.cf, conserver.passwd, and conserver.rc.

Thanks for any help!


[bash stephen:/usr/local/etc]conserver -V
