Getting started with conserver

Good morning. I'm just getting started with conserver and have been been trying to deploy it in a test environment prior to moving it into production. Although the FAQ's and docs on the site are limited, they appear to be relatively clear.

However, after doing the basic "configure, make, make install", setting up the conserver.cf and conserver.passwd files, I am getting the following error when running `conserver -d`:

# conserver -vd
[Mon Oct 24 10:50:58 2005] conserver (11072): conserver.com version 8.1.12
[Mon Oct 24 10:50:58 2005] conserver (11072): started as `root' by `root'
[Mon Oct 24 10:50:58 2005] conserver (11072): INFO: interface address (lo)
[Mon Oct 24 10:50:58 2005] conserver (11072): INFO: interface address (eth0)
[Mon Oct 24 10:50:58 2005] conserver (11072): ERROR: getservbyname(conserver) failed

The best I can figure is that the reference for conserver is not found in /etc/services?

Also, there is no mention of it on the site, but I don't see anything that mentions a service listening on the client side. Right now I have the menu.lst (grub) configured with:

default 0
timeout 8
gfxmenu (hd0,1)/boot/message
serial --unit=0 --speed=9600 --word=8 --parity=no --stop=1
terminal --timeout=10 serial console
title SUSE LINUX 9.3
kernel (hd0,1)/boot/vmlinuz root=/dev/hda2 selinux=0 \ console=ttyS0,9600n8 x11i=vesa resume=/dev/hda1 showopts
initrd (hd0,1)/boot/initrd

Which, by all rights, should accept logins via ttyS0.

Any input or better documentation available?
