I don't know anything about this nsca program, but I'd suggest using
either "telnet localhost 5667" or "telnet 127.1 5667" rather than
attempting to use "0" as an alias for the local system.
It's a bit of an old Solaris bug that allows address 0 to work as a
local address (even though it's not a valid address), and there's no
guarantee that it will work on any modern Solaris system. A simple bug
fix could easily break it.
