Basic NNTP Protocol

  • The NNTP Server responds to all commands with a single text line starting with a 3 digit numeric code, possibly followed by text or values ("parameters"), ending with CR-LF.

  • A multi-line text response may follow, when indicated by the numeric response code.

    The following is taken from RFC977 2.4.2. Status Responses

    Certain status responses contain parameters such as numbers and names.
