dccifd does not seem to be doing anything

Hi,

I am new to DCC, but an old *NIX admin.

I am experimenting with DCC and having couple of problems I would like your 
advice on.

1.
I configured the DCC according to the instructions.  I am running sendmail 
and spamassassin, both working OK.  Unfortunately I cannot use milters as 
they are not compiled in and for various reasons (mostly lots of manual 
changes to sendmail.cf) I cannot just replace the sendmail.cf with another 
one.

First question:
When I enable dccifd in dcc_conf and start it with "service DCC start" 
(renamed rcDCC script) I see two daemons running, but they do not do 
anything.  No lines are added to headers, no greylisting is active, nothing.  
Why?
DCCIFD_ARGS="-SHELO -Smail_host -SSender -SList-ID -SMailing-list -T/tmp 
- -l/var/log/dcc -tCMN,100,200"

Second question:
When I disable dccifd in dcc_conf and run dccproc with relevant hooks in 
procmailrc it works OK. Lines are added to headers, filtration is active. 
However, greylisting still does not work.
What's more, each and every hour, according to logs, dccproc tries to start 
dccifd.  First time it is successful, subsequently it is not obviously 
because dccifd is running already.  Why and where it is given that dccproc 
starts dccifd?  There is nothing in my crontabs and I could not find 
anything in /var/dcc either.  Yet it repeats itself each and every hour.

Any advice on these problems would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Frank
