I think I've found a good way to get Dove-Net served via rocksolid nntp server. It will be read-only as per the terms of Dove-Net.

I'll see how soon I can get that going, but having an a/c problem on the house right now (compressor won't turn off) and that's taking a lot of my time (can't find the right contactor).

I'll post back when one or more groups has been added to the server.

Well good just let me know when it makes sense for me to add the groups.

Will you put the freenet and usenet groups also on this nntp-server, so that it will have all groups, or will they stay only on the old one ?

I need to get pullnews working and then I can get dovenet and usenet set up.

Freenet is a bit different. Group naming consistency and username control are critical for posting. Posting and username security work now if connected through retrobbs, but I need to do some testing to make sure that a user who claims an identity (Freenet identity) can't be spoofed once running through the nntp server.

pullnews is giving me an error and I'm having a bit of difficulty with it right now. Also, busy with real life stuff atm also.

Once I can get pullnews to actually feed the nntp server, both dovenet and usenet should be ready to go. I'll just create the groups and connect.

Alright, I see that there is some complicated stuff to synch this.

Meanwhile, another question: I have been thinking about setting a nntp-server locally. Maybe it is a good idea to separate frontend and backend, just like you did. Will make things easier when integrating more nodes, I suspect (I am not sure how well Fud handles updates from different sources to the same forum).
Do you have a recommendation for the software ? inn maybe ? or what do you use ?

That's a good idea. It properly distributes the forums.

I use inn2, which seems to be working fine.

I just came home from work to find the computer running retrobbs and rocksolid locked up (so, not so rocksolid).

All the more reason to run multiple, remote nntp servers.

You should be able to set up inn2, and have it sync with mine here, then you only need to connect to your own nntp server, not multiple servers for the same group.

I do plan to run a separate remote inn2 instance also, but not right away. I want to get feeding the server working locally first. It's not something I've done before and the logging is lacking, so it's hard to identify what I'm doing wrong.
