MCNTP is a proctocol and an implementation of that protocol to exchange NetNews articles between servers in a bandwidth-friendly way. The package contains the complete suite of tools and is ready to run with a news server that uses the classical spool concept (such as INN 1.x). As of 1.2, there is also support for the INN 2.x storage API.
MyNewsGroups :) is a USENET news client with a completely Web-based interface. It is written in PHP4, and uses a database backend. Its main purpose is to mirror all messages from subcribed public newsgroups into a database, and add extra features such as saving articles per user, statistics on users, search functions, and so on. MyNewsGroups :) is aimed at people that have a Web site and want offer their users direct access to newsgroups of same subject.
NNTPSwitch is a Linux NNTP content router. It's aimed at high-performance news servers for ISPs and Usenet resellers. NNTPSwitch forwards client connections to multiple backend servers to get its actual articles. Depending on the backend server type, all NNTP commands and extensions are supported, including (remote) authorization. Accounting is supported in a user-friendly matter for data limited NNTP connections.
NNTPspider searches for freely accessible NNTP servers (free news servers) by using information from the message headers. This search starts with at least one default newsserver that you can access, usually the one at your ISP. It reads the Path: lines in the headers in order to find more news servers. All the servers that are found are checked for public access and queried for a list of supplied newsgroups. This results in a quite complete list of all news servers currently availiable.
Net_NNTP is a PHP/PEAR library for communication with NNTP servers. Net_NNTP handles connection and protocol-level commands (RFC977), including many non-standard commands (RFC2980), via a user-friendly API which hides the actual NNTP commands/syntax. Some knowledge about NNTP and general knowledge about email and MIME is required, since parsing of content and headers is left up to the user. Net_NNTP allows advanced users direct usage of NNTP commands via the separate protocol implementation. Net_NNTP includes a fully-functional NNTP to HTML gateway demo application.
