Posted: 17 Hours 4 Minutes ago by: Julien_ÉLIEHi Retro Guy, This behaviour is worth documenting in incoming.conf; I'll add a sentence for the "password" keyword saying that innd will accept any username provided by the remote peer (mandatory in the authentication protocol) as long
Posted: 17 Hours 44 Minutes ago by: Retro GuyThank you for the info and confirmation. It works for me also, but I just never understood if I was using it correctly due to USER only being available on one end.
Posted: 1 Day ago by: Julien_ÉLIEHi Matija, [...] Yes, I confirm AUTHINFO works fine in both innfeed and innd. I thoroughly tested it when implementing NNTP v2. The reason behind that behaviour is historical. Prior to INN 2.6.0, released in 2015, a remote peer could

Posted: 1 Day 23 Hours ago by: Russ AllberyINN does not. Client certificate authentication is in general kind of a pain in the ass and is very rarely implemented by clients (and when it is, the UI is normally horrible, such as in web browsers), so there was never enough demand
Posted: 2 Days 2 Hours ago by: Matija NalisHopefully someone who uses that should try changing password on only one side and see if the authentication fails (or there might be a bug - e.g. option is ignored and all access is always enabled) Sure - as are *all* username/password

Posted: 2 Days 8 Hours ago by: Retro GuyThere are two features in I2P that help with this. One is that you can tie a client key (generated by the client) to a server tunnel. You can whitelist key(s) for this tunnel, and only allow specific clients to connect. Also, if you ru
Posted: 2 Days 9 Hours ago by: Grant TaylorWould you please elaborate on what I2P does that's different? I know /of/ I2P, but very little about it. Most of that is that the client is written in Java, which is a bad thing IMHO. I don't know. That's probably a question for tho
Posted: 2 Days 10 Hours ago by: Retro GuyYes, that's true. I2P makes it much easier. While I'm not sure if using or understanding it correctly, I use a 'password' in innfeed and incoming.conf. While it seems to work ok, I'm not sure why you can set a username in innfeed, but
Posted: 2 Days 14 Hours ago by: Grant TaylorMy concern about peering over Tor is the absence of sending system identification. It is typical for peering privileges to be associated with the source IP. So, based on the very nature of Tor -- as I understand it -- anyone that kno
Posted: 3 Days 7 Hours ago by: Retro GuyAnytime. While I do peer with several peers over i2p, I only peer between two of my own servers with tor, but it works fine. Feel free to just try running the script and pointing it to: zkcvkb5xprurx5dvpanhyivneuzah6k6xayxgxd4h2ekklx
Posted: 3 Days 19 Hours ago by: Jason EvansHi Retro Guy, Thanks for the script, I will look into this. I'll first try to establish a connection between two VMs and then I may come back to you about peering if everything works. I wonder if creating a system service (e.g. syste
Posted: 3 Days 23 Hours ago by: Russ AllberyDo you mean nnrp.access? It was replaced with readers.conf in INN 2.3.0. There's a program called nnrp.access2readers.conf in INN's contrib directory that will try to convert the old format to the new format.
Posted: 4 Days 2 Hours ago by: seth hurstHello I was installing inn on a linode server and I'm missing the nnrpd.access file on a new inn install. Ware would this file get placed on a fresh install? Using inn2.6.
Posted: 5 Days 5 Hours ago by: Retro GuyI have done this and it works fine. My previous partner in this project (rocksolid), trw, wrote a script to handle peering over tor and it works well. I'll post the script below. If you want to test, I'll be happy to test with you. Aga
Posted: 5 Days 19 Hours ago by: Julien_ÉLIEBonsoir Franck, Yes, that's right. This is enforced at injection time. Ah, OK. I thought you were looking for header fields that were supposed to be unique (as you answered "Checked to be unique" in previous discussions). If you ar

Posted: 6 Days 1 Hour ago by: Jason EvansHi all, First of all, I know that there have been some usenet servers that offer read- only access to groups via a Tor onion service and that's not what I'm writing about today. I would like to know if anyone here has been experimenting
Posted: 6 Days 9 Hours ago by: FranckHi Julien, Since this table is part of the "nnrp.c" code, I assume that it is only used for injection (POST) not for transit (IHAVE)? No? I just want to offer the possibility (configurable) of rejecting articles received from a feed wi
Posted: 6 Days 19 Hours ago by: Julien_ÉLIEHi Franck and Russ, Incidentally, I see that I once wrote at the end of the header table: /* The Comments and Original-Sender header fields can appear more than once * in the headers of an article. Consequently, we MUST NOT put th

Posted: 7 Days 18 Hours ago by: Russ AllberyOh, sorry, yes, I knew I forgot something. Those should go into the "readers are going to have a hard time understanding the message" category of rejecting duplicates. Reply-To is probably in the From and Subject territory. None of

Posted: 7 Days 22 Hours ago by: Russ AllberyIt is to some degree up to you. Relaying agents are allowed to be strict about RFC 5536 compliance, or they're allowed to relay messages that don't follow the standard but can still be processed. I think it's generally better for Usen

Posted: 8 Days 7 Hours ago by: FranckHello, When INJECTING an article, some headers should not appear and others should appear only once. I do the checks in a way similar to INN (nnrp/post.c) but with some additions, such as the format expected by the header value. When R

Posted: 17 Days 18 Hours ago by: Julien_ÉLIEBonjour Franck, Yes, that is indeed the new software I was looking for. I somehow thought it was similar to the first one and already had a graphical interface, but I was wrong. Thanks for all the effort you put into it! I hope it
Posted: 18 Days 8 Hours ago by: FranckSalut Julien, As announced several years ago, I sold the sources of my old project and I no longer have the right to use them. I have no contact with the buyer, I don't think he did anything with it and I don't think the software is sti

Posted: 18 Days 22 Hours ago by: Russ AllberyINN at one point built on cygwin, but I'm not sure it makes much sense to try to resurrect that support (which has almost certainly bitrotted) now that Windows Subsystem for Linux exists. cygwin is a fairly weird environment that is ha
Posted: 20 Days 6 Hours ago by: yamo'Yes, it will be a very good thing! Or making a documentation to run INN2 on cygwin.
Posted: 20 Days 20 Hours ago by: Julien_ÉLIEBonsoir Franck, Glad to hear that behaviour is reasonable :) Incidentally, is your news server available for download on the Internet? I looked for it a few months ago but did not manage to find it. I ask because I believe a few people
Posted: 20 Days 20 Hours ago by: Julien_ÉLIEHi Russ, Indeed, that's not currently implemented. Nonetheless, a specific check in an nnrpd filter hook is easy to add by the news admin if he wants that behaviour :-)
Posted: 20 Days 20 Hours ago by: Julien_ÉLIEBonjour Franck, Exactly. I've set "laxmid" on my news server (trigofacile). It is just for testing purposes. I bet mixmin has kept the default ("no-laxmid"). There's no "right" behaviour. You can naturally implement whatever you

Posted: 24 Days 7 Hours ago by: meffslrn is pretty configurable and you can pretty much set any key to mean anything. It has its esoteric Slang which lets you extend slrn a lot. As far as writing posts or follow-ups, as others have said, $EDITOR is all you need set. My de
Posted: 24 Days 10 Hours ago by: Jason EvansIt depends on how old the article is. Some Usenet providers go back to ~2003 and archive.org goes from the 80s's-90's to around 2003. If you know the sender, the group, and something like the subject line, you may be able to find the

Posted: 24 Days 19 Hours ago by: Henning HuckeYou can also redefine a lot of key combinations. I'm not shure that you can exactly copy key combinations which are semantically the same as with vim but you can at least redefine them as shurely also come as close to vim as possible. W
Posted: 24 Days 20 Hours ago by: rek2 hispagatosSorry I did not explain my self, SRLN does use vim as the editor but to navigate arround it does not use VIM keys Colors: you can change some colors but there is no background transparency as far as I can tell.
Posted: 25 Days 7 Hours ago by: Henning HuckeHi nameless poster, slrn uses colors - at least my one does. If yours doesn't use color then RTFD (read the fucking documentation) and configure your prefered color bay yourself. Same applies to the used key settings. Best regards
Posted: 25 Days 8 Hours ago by: Nigel ReedYou could always use tin which does use vim as the editor, if that's your default editor of course.
Posted: 25 Days 9 Hours ago by: FranckHi Russ, Thanks! It reply perfectly to my initial question and explain the different replies. I will change my implementation of "laxmid" to act in the same way as INN. Again, thanks a lot.
Posted: 25 Days 12 Hours ago by: rek2 hispagatosHello I been using slrn I try to use everything on TUI/CLI tools and slrn is ok, but lacks a lot of features I will like, as in color theme and VIM keys by default. Any software out there with colors/vim keys for the terminal/tui?
Posted: 25 Days 16 Hours ago by: Russ AllberyNo, mixmin will reject the article. The setting controls both whether articles with such malformed message IDs can be posted and whether they're accepted from peers. If you're asking if there's a way to configure INN to accept such art
Posted: 25 Days 16 Hours ago by: FranckHi Russ, I do not have an INN server configured for myself but I tried on different servers running 2.7.0. I try to understand how it works because I implemented it in my own server but with a different approach (and perhalps I'm wron
Posted: 25 Days 18 Hours ago by: Russ AllberyThe first argument to ARTICLE is verified with: mid = (ac > 1 && IsValidMessageID(av, true, laxmid)); so it should take the laxmid setting into account. Are you sure that your instance of INN is configured with lax message
Posted: 25 Days 19 Hours ago by: FranckHi Russ, I have no trouble with a specific article in circulation but I'm surprised by the replies of INN. If I try to find an article with the laxmid format (double dot or double arobase) : ARTICLE <double..firstname.lastname@example.org> or ARTICL
Posted: 25 Days 20 Hours ago by: Russ AllberyCould you give a specific example of a message ID that you're having trouble with? All of the calls to IsValidMessageID that I see in nnrpd use the laxmid setting, so I think I need more details to understand the problem.
