It is designed for a small, partial news feed. It is NOT designed to feed 10,000 groups and 3 Gigs of articles a day. This package contains software for copying news from an NNTP server to your local machine, and copying replies back up to an NNTP server. It works with most standard NNTP servers, including INN, CNEWS, DNEWS, and typhoon. The suck/rpost combination allows you to run your own site, controlling where you get your news, and where you post outgoing articles. Suck/rpost use only standard NNTP commands that are used by your favorite news reader (tin, xvnews, strn) such as POST and ARTICLE. If you can use tin or xvnews against a NNTP site, than you can use Suck/Rpost.
