NNTP or Network News Transfer Protocol is used for the viewing of USENET
Newsgroups on the Internet. To view newsgroups, you will need a news client such as
Outlook Express of Free Agent.
CProxy Server: NNTP
Listen to Port
The number specified in this field defines the port number upon which CProxy Server will
listen for NNTP requests from Newsgroup client software. The default port number is 119.
The TCP/IP timeout value specifies in seconds, the period of time that CProxy will attempt
to contact a remote news server. If no response is received within the defined period,
CProxy will return an error to news client.
The server listed in the News Server field is the upstream news server to which CProxy
will send its newsgroup requests. Contact your Internet Service Provider for the hostname
of their news server.
User NNTP Authentication
Some Internet Newsgroup Servers require that you specify a username and
password to access the system. If this is the case, check the box labelled Use
NNTP Authentication and enter your username and password to access the system.
