ytalk


Hello, I have two slackware boxes connected via a crossover
cable. They are assigned static IPs, They can communicate thorough a destop sharing utility, GFTP, etc.
I was trying to play with ytalk, the error I got on both machines is:
$ ytalk -h 192.168.0.1 sycamorex

No talk daemon on 192.168.0.1

On the other machine the same
$ ytalk -h 192.168.0.2 sycamorex

No talk daemon on 192.168.0.2

How can I connect them?
thanks

Never having needed this functionality myself, I'm talking from zero experience, but it seems likely that you need to have ytalkd running on those boxes. That daemon will allow you to ytalk between them, handling the communication between them.

1.How can I have it running?
2. Is there any other/better way of 'chatting' between 2 computers on my home network (the boxes are not connected to the internet not yet, at least)
thanks

i dont know if this will work, but have you tried uncommenting the talk daemon in /etc/inetd.conf ? that sounds like a good place to start.
