-Has anyone set up a n INN server on freebsd, successfuly?


Yes, no problem. Have you read the Inn install doc in /usr/local/share/doc/inn/INSTALL
This is a step by step guide to the *long* configuration.

Note that if you want to suck in news from another news server you also
need some other software, the best one being newsx (in the ports).

You also need to edit the "active" file to add newsgroups.


Thanks,

I think my problem may be my not having other software to grab the news from an upstream news server. I'll take a look at newsx. The configuration is long for sure, but I've been through it so many times in the past few days that I think I'm getting better at it. :-)

I'll report my success/failures as soon as I can get back on it.

Thanks for that information. I've added news.software.nntp to my newsgroup and active files. I don't know if I spent so much time reading the doc's that I couldn't see the forest for the newsfeeds, but until Michel Talon wrote:

I was chasing my tail trying to get the server to pul in articles. I think that should stand out in the docs, somewhere, but I never did see it, or if I did see it, I didn't understand what it was saying.
