I get only 3 responses to my question, two of them said something like :
"Are you sure that you are doing all right ???".
The other one ask me : what happen with the Sun sopport in Chile ??. ( If somebody else want to know more about Chile, just call me. No problem !!!).
So how is impossible for me made a mistake, :-), i look in the source code of the pop deamon ( popd.c ), who come in the first disk of PC-NFS's Lifeline. And I found in the routine who check the user identification ( check_user() ) the error : this routine don't have an "return(0)" when found one valid user. Then when the deamon try to verify the user identification, the result of this rutine is impredictable, and Lifeline generate the "Protocol Error" message.
