NAME

       HELLO - perform initial conversation with a newsserver (used by sn news
       system)

SYNOPSIS

       HELLO

DESCRIPTION

       HELLO is the program that gets executed for  every  newsserver  by  the
       snget(8)  program. There is a connection to the newsserver, but nothing
       has been sent  or  received  yet.  This  program  handles  the  initial
       contact.   File  descriptors  6  is  used  for  data  coming  from  the
       newsserver, and descriptor 7 is used for data going to the  newsserver.

       This program is used by the sn news system.

       You never have to use this program yourself. However, when a newsserver
       is non-standard, you may have to modify a copy of it for  that  server.
       Newsserver-specific copies should go into /var/spool/sn/.outgoing/HOST
