I am currently running Leafnode 1.4-7. and I am NOT a Happy
Klingon. Every now and then their server will not let me post an artical
Leafnode bombs with error 441 and 400 errors. As sometimes they want
my password and sometimes they want my username. IT seems Leafnode is
not too smart to figure the equation out of what is wanted.
They are running Inn ver 1.4 but they are using the nnrpd
server, not the nntpd server, can a downlink Inn 1.4 talk sucessfully
with an inn system using nnrpd? I do not relish the aggrevation of
dealing with inn 1.4 but I got it. and they (SNET INTERNET) are using
the same thing, IF I put inn up. can my system talk to theirs?? and
for my local use. can I use the nntpd module and disable authentication so
programs such as SLRN or pine or TRN or RN will work with the news system?
or would Cnews be a better choice for someone that has about 200MB of space
free on their Hard drive network. (System spans 3 Scsi Hds. two 380mb and
one 40mb (which is swap only)). I read the inn setup instructions. one hell
of an ugly job I should say.
I also and considering putting another 80mb Scsi and possibly a
72mb MFM drive also online.
Another fine question. is, how can I get a list of newsgroups and
descriptions? I would like to have this list. its similar to the fidonet
BACKBONE.NA file. and I like to browse it for interesting computer groups
