Full description Leafnode is a news server designed for smaLeafnode is a news server designed for small sites, with a few tens of readers and only a slow link to the net. It uses very little disk space and bandwidth compared to other servers, is easily configured and maintained, and tries very hard to recover automatically from error situations. Each article is stored in a separate file. There are six programs, three essential and several add-ons. The essentials are leafnode (NNTP server-- talks to news clients and stores readership data); fetchnews (NNTP news-gatherer-- looks at stored readership data and selects groups to pull news from); and texpire, which deletes old and uninteresting news. Add-ons are applyfilter (deletes articles fitting a certain pattern); checkgroups (inserts newsgroup titles into the database; newsq (shows which news are waiting to be transferred to your upstream server).o be transferred to your upstream server).
