       nntpd - NNTP server process


       nntpd [ -C config-file ] [ -U uses ] [ -T timeout ] [ -D ]
             [ -s ] [ -r ] [ -f ] [ -p ssf ]


       Nntpd  is  a  NNTP  server.  It accepts commands on its standard input and responds on its
       standard output.  It MUST invoked by cyrmaster(8) with those  descriptors  attached  to  a
       remote client connection.

       Nntpd  reads  its  configuration  options  out  of the imapd.conf(5) file unless specified
       otherwise by -C.  The optional newsprefix option specifies a prefix  to  be  prepended  to
       newsgroup  names  to make the corresponding IMAP mailbox names.  The optional newspostuser
       option specifies the special userid to be used when contructing the To: header address for
       following  up  to articles when read via IMAP.  The optional newspeer option specifies the
       fully qualified hostname of the upstream news server  to  which  articles  are  fed.   The
       optional  allownewnews  option enables the NNTP NEWNEWS command.  NOTE: For servers with a
       large volume of articles, the NEWNEWS command can be expensive.

       If the directory log/user exists under the  directory  specified  in  the  configdirectory
       configuration  option,  then  nntpd  will  create  protocol  telemetry  logs  for sessions
       authenticating as user.  The telemetry logs will be stored in the log/user directory  with
       a filename of the nntpd process-id.


       -C config-file
              Read configuration options from config-file.

       -U uses
              The  maximum  number  of  times that the process should be used for new connections
              before shutting down.  The default is 250.

       -T timeout
              The number of seconds that the process  will  wait  for  a  new  connection  before
              shutting  down.   Note  that  a  value  of  0 (zero) will disable the timeout.  The
              default is 60.

       -D     Run external debugger specified in debug_command.

       -s     Serve NNTP over SSL (nntps).  All data to and from nntpd  is  encrypted  using  the
              Secure Sockets Layer.

       -r     Only  allow  NNTP  reader  commands.   Permitted  clients  will  only be allowed to
              read/post articles.

       -f     Only allow NNTP feeder commands.  Permitted clients will only be  allowed  to  feed
              articles (no reading).

       -p ssf Tell  nntpd  that an external layer exists.  An SSF (security strength factor) of 1
              means an integrity protection layer exists.  Any higher SSF implies  some  form  of
              privacy protection.
