Error during command authentication.

Error - unable to initiate communication with LISTSERV (errno=111). The server is probably not started. Heya Seb,

Same here, we've mostly done basic authentication with UK projects. A few gov't projects have elected to go with an APIKEY param instead, just to make users of the service have to register, but keep the interface as simple as possible.

and I'd like to set up a server that supports as many existing client
applications as possible.

Does anyone have a sense of what's most commonly supported by commercial
or OSS SRU clients today?
