|6.2.3. The NetNews Reading Daemon|
Innd implements a subset of the NNTP protocol -- only those commands that are needed for peer sites to feed news articles. You must install nnrpd to allow users to read news. If a connection comes in from a host that is not a specified feed, then an nnrpd process is spawned to handle it. (You can debug nnrpd by running it interactively; put an entry for the host named ``stdin'' in your nnrp.access file.) Build the newsreader server by doing the following: cd $inn/nnrpd make all Note that if users on a peer machine (one that feeds you news) want to read news from your server, then you have two choices. You can use nntpd from the reference platform (See Appendix II) and make sure not to list the peer in your nntp.access file. The other choice is to relink the reading software on the other machine with the INN library so that it uses the ``mode reader'' NNTP command extension.
