    When polling a specific system (Kofo) using various FTN
    addresses, I have been getting the error:

    "got non-fatal error 'Too many servers' from remote: undefined"

    I've seen this one before, and I believe it's what binkd says after it hits its maximum number of inbound connections.

    Nothing you can do about it from your end except try again later, or
    if it's a persistent problem, maybe ask him to restart binkd or
    increase his limit.

    Thanks for the reply.

    I don't recall ever seeing this when I was running binkd, but that doesn't mean it didn't happen. As a temporary "fix", I changed the .clo files to .hlo, until the next time there is outbound bundles.

    Ray

    Is this due to the fact that he has so many aliases? So far, his is
    the only system for which I have seen this error. He is running binkd/1.1a-27/Linux

    It's because Gert's stuff is always fucked up, he never responds to
    emails any more. All the networks he is responsible for are pretty much
    on life support and about to go into hospice. Nobody will link to them
    because you can never connect to his server.

    I'll probably just leave it alone in the "hopes" it connects one way or the other. I don't believe his system makes outgoing calls.

    I logged onto his BBS and left a message. I guess we'll see.

    That said, a while ago I heard he wasn't in good health so you never know.
