INN news config?

2003-02-04 17:22:07+00 by Dan Lyke 1 comments

Anyone out there done an INN or other NNTP server config recently? Could be just with local newsgroups, but I'd like to set up a news server for Flutterby, it'd be really handy if it handled spaces in the user name authorization, and I'd like to mirror the discussions here on to the newsgroup. Just getting me through the basics of getting the authorization system set up should be fine, I haven't done this stuff since 1994, and that was a much simpler config in simpler days.

I finally gave up on INN, it was larger than what I needed (which was just a simple place to dump incoming mailing lists so I could browse them with a newsreader instead of an MUA). I went with the Twisted NNTP server (http://www.twistedmatrix.com), which is easy to extend (if you're comfortable with python) to do whatever authentication you want.
