hi everybody,
i try to install cyrus (Cyrus IMAP4 v2.1.13-IPv6-Debian-2.1.13-2)
from a debian package and still have a problem to connect to
cyradm using "cyradm --user cyrus --auth login --server localhost".

i receive this error:
Login failed: generic failure at /usr/lib/perl5/Cyrus/IMAP/ line 118
cyradm: cannot authenticate to server with mech login as user cyrus

i'am using saslauthd / pam.

i have a test-util (/usr/sbin/testsaslauthd) that tells me sasl2 is
running fine - that meens the authentification of the user 'cyrus'
using pam against saslauthd seems to be ok.

allowplaintext: yes
sasl_mech_list: PLAIN
sasl_minimum_layer: 0
sasl_pwcheck_method: saslauthd
sasl_auto_transition: no

Dec  5 18:30:03 cfmxdb cyrus/imapd[691]: accepted connection
Dec  5 18:30:06 cfmxdb cyrus/imapd[691]: badlogin: cfmxdb[]

Dec  5 18:30:06 cfmxdb cyrus/imapd[691]: cannot connect to saslauthd server:
Connection refused

anyone any hints ?
T.I.A. !!!
