You're close...  what it means is that you need an entry in your
/etc/hosts file that identifies the node as the conserver node.

For example, a line in my /etc/hosts files looks like:   localhost.localdomain   localhost       conserver

Subject: 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
[Mon Oct 24 10:50:58 2005] conserver (11072): started as `root' by
[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?
