NAME

snnewgroup - create a new sn newsgroup  

SYNOPSIS

snnewgroup newsgroup [server] [port]
 

DESCRIPTION

snnewgroup creates newsgroup assigning it an upstream NNTP server of server:port. If port is not specified, defaults to 119. If server is also not specified, newsgroup is created as a local group which is fed only by articles POSTed to it.

You will need to be root or own /var/spool/sn in order to add new groups.

 

ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES

If this is set and is not empty, the value is used in place of /var/spool/sn, the default news spool directory.

/var/spool/sn/newsgroup/.created

/var/spool/sn/newsgroup/.serial
