|Subject: (6.17) Add local newsgroups?|
Q: Does anyone have a cookbook example on how to create a local news group?
These are the steps ..
1) Make sure your innd is running
2) Add the group with: ctlinnd newgroup local.group
3) Add entries to newsfeeds to restrict the local groups to your
ME:!local.*:: out.going.site:*,!local.*:Tf,Wnm:4) Add a descriptive entry to newsgroups
5) Ready :)
Please consider, that local is a very common name for local groups, so
if a user crossposts to local.test and misc.test the article will show
up in all local.test over the world. So please choose a 'better' name.
