Those two statements are contradictory.  The first says it works, the second

problem.  At this point you've not provided us enough information to do anything
but guess and speculate.  Most people's time is more valuable than that.

So, my recommendation is to test more thoroughly via telnet and copy/paste any
errors.  Use this as a guide:
