Papercut NNTP server
Multi-threaded NNTP server

Papercut is a multi-threaded NNTP server whose main objective is to integrate Web-based message board software (Phorum, for example) with a Usenet front-end. Its extensibility lets developers write their own containers to store Usenet articles (messages). The code is extensible enough that you could write new containers to integrate the news server with other Web message board projects or even other ways to store the messages.
