I have compiled a psyBNC, but i cannot start it, it says:

Configuration File: bnc.conf
Language File: psyBNC Language File - English
No logfile specified, logging to log/psybnc.log
Cannot create listening port .. aborting

config file contains:
PSYBNC.SYSTEM.PORT1=9431
PSYBNC.SYSTEM.HOST1=redhat.polarhome.com
PSYBNC.HOSTALLOWS.ENTRY0=*;*

I have tried various ports, but why i'm unable to crate listening port. My shell is running on redhat, so direct access ports are 5000-9999. So, wat is wrong with this?

Thank you.
Vron

Try to change HOST1 to 192.168.10.5

Might do it, not sure.

PSYBNC.SYSTEM.HOST1=*

I am using this setting, and everything is fine.

BTW try using menuconfig for configuration its more confortable.

i used PSYBNC.SYSTEM.HOST1=* earlier but it didn't work, so why i tried to change it to redhat.polarhome.com. I haven't tried to use 192.168.10.5, because redhat is down at a time. But i don't think it will help. I have tried using meniu config also, but i got the same result. There is something wrong with those ports.

How to do that? I tried tu telnet to those ports and i got message that "connection refused". So, i think the port is free.
Can you show yours psybnc config. I do not understand what is wrong here, why it is impossible to create listening port. (I tried with eggdrop and it could create a port.)

Could you write a full command to check if port is in use, because i don't know linux well.
Thanx.

It isn't linux command ;) . Go to www.polarhome.com. In the left is "service" menu. Click statistics. Then select your host and "used ports net-stat" from another dropdown box. Then use your browsers search to find unused ports. ;)

BTW maybe there is linux command, but I don't know it.

You can use netstat on the prompt but its prettier on the instructions you gave.

It is possible to get that list in the shell, when you type "netstat". I think, that port i am using is free, bet still i get that damn error.
Any ideas?

Vron's problem was that he was using a very old build of psyBNC.

all i had to do is compile the latest and greatest, and it worked out fine.

id'e suggest you do the same :)
