This is my first install of an OES/Linux server into our tree composed
entirely of OES/NW servers. As far as I know everything went OK but I
can't get red carpet channels working.

WHen I try to add a channel using :
run sa

I get:
When trying to activate RCD or ZLM client by entering 'rug act
<activation string> <e-mail address>' The client returns an error
saying, "Unable to activate. IO error - SOUP error: Connection
Terminated Unexpectedly (7)"

All the tids I have looked at regarding activating or attaching to a
channel have failed.

Can someone help me out. Much appreciated, Chris.

PS. My initial impression of OES/Linux is not positive.
