My old ISP has dropped shell support, so I've moved to a new ISP. I've been 
connecting to news using nntp-open-connection-function 
nntp-open-via-rlogin-and-telnet and
thought I should only need to change the host information:

(setq gnus-secondary-select-methods
      '((nntp "new-alias"
             (nntp-open-connection-function nntp-open-via-rlogin-and-telnet)
             (nntp-never-echoes-commands t)
             (nntp-via-address "new-shell-host")
             (nntp-address "new-nntp-server")
             (nntp-record-commands t)
             (nntp-end-of-line "\n")
             (nntp-via-rlogin-command "ssh")
             (nntp-via-rlogin-command-switches ("-t" "-e" "none")))))

However, I always get an error when connecting. The " *nttpd*" buffer is empty, 
is no *nntp-log* buffer (with or without a leading space). Additionally, if I 
run ps
from the shell to see what command is running, it looks fine. I can even 
that command and get dropped to a telnet prompt from which I can open a 
connection to

What are my options for debugging this?
