I have a curious problem with KNode when accessing - or trying to access -
I have two very similar laptops (Thinkpad T60 and T61),
both running Fedora-17/KDE .
On one of them, when I try to get new articles from Eternal-September
I am asked to enter the password, and this is never accepted -
I am simply asked to enter it again and again.
On the other laptop, I have no problem -
on pressing B, all the new articles are listed.
As far as I can see, the setup on both laptops is identical.
The username and password are given in
with the same server news.eternal-september.org
and the same port 119.
And I also have the password saved in the wallet on both machines.
If anyone can suggest why this happens I would be very grateful.
I might say that
gets me through to the server.
Unfortunately I am not sure what dialog should follow.
