You might well have to define a server to link to in the
/usr/local/etc/convers.conf file.

Conversd is a funny old thing when it starts up: first it seems to
do a dns lookup for 'unix' which depending on your location can take
up to a couple of minutes :-(

There are a couple of mailing lists about convers: convers-sysops
and tpp-topics both courtesy of Brian Lantz - see for
more info.
