Re: Problem with POP server

   I felt that upgrading all software to the same distribution version 
would be a good step.  Unfortunately in the process of fixing the 
problem with POP I ended up breaking other things.

   I've now restored the LDAP database from a backup -- the raw data 
file format changed between versions, so I needed to 'slapcat' on an old 
backup and then 'slapadd' on the new version.

   The new version of HESIOD no longer looks for DNS entries under the 
HS class, but only under the IN class.  It would have been too much of a 
hassle to change the infrastructure to use IN, so I wrote scripts to no 
longer be dependent on HESIOD at all. 

   While I am still testing, I believe all the services offered by the 
'hugli' server are now working at the new software versions.  I've now 
upgraded 'calcutta' and 'hugli' to Fedora 8, with only 'newdelhi' remaining.
