Hobbit System Logs - client did not report

Hello Hob-sters,

I have been testing my Hobbit server [4.1.2p1] for a number of weeks now.
Its working great and everything is going well so far with my test criteria.
I am wondering how do I fix the service type "msgs" of clear on my hobbit
server. The status is reporting the following: "No log data available; The
client did not report any logfile data." I am running Debian 3.1 (stable)
and I have used the server .deb from sourceforge. Do I need the client .deb
to fix this? Its not a huge issue but something I am trying to figure out.

Looking at the hobbitlaunch.cfg, the hobbitserver.cfg and hobbitclient.sh I
can see and follow the resulting tests to a msg.txt file created in
$BBHOME/TMP but its not getting back to the hobbit display. I have noticed a
runclient.sh but don't see where its launched or referenced in the cfg
files. Would this be the piece I am missing in my configuration? It appears
to be getting the data but its not going to the display. So any input is

Thanks in advance for responding to my questions.
