Here is how to poll messages from one nntp server to another using inn2:

Select a non-root user to use for this part:

Create a file in this user's home directory called '.pullnews' containing:

# Format: (date is epoch seconds)
# hostname [username password]
#         group date high
192.168.0.220 <username> <password>
         rocksolid.admin.admin
         rocksolid.shared.dancingelephants
         rocksolid.shared.entertainment
         rocksolid.shared.freenet
         rocksolid.shared.general
         rocksolid.shared.helpdesk
         rocksolid.shared.i2p
         rocksolid.shared.news
         rocksolid.shared.offtopic
         rocksolid.shared.retrobbs
         rocksolid.shared.test
         rocksolid.shared.tor

username and password are the ones assigned to you when joining the network. Don't use your own personal username/password from any rocksolid forums as that won't work, you will be assigned a specific user/pass just to sync with the nntp server.

To pull DOVE-Net forums, add:
         DOVE-Net.Advertisements
         DOVE-Net.Entertainment
         DOVE-Net.General
         DOVE-Net.HAM_Radio
         DOVE-Net.Hobbies
         DOVE-Net.Internet
         DOVE-Net.Programming
         DOVE-Net.Religion
         DOVE-Net.Synchronet_Discussion

For Freenet (FMS) add:
boards 0 0
         censorship
         fms
         freedom
         freenet
         news
         politics
         privacy
         programming
         public
         security
         shared.test
         sites
         test

For every board you want to sync, you must add it to your inn2 installation:

As root: 'ctlinnd newgroup <name.of.group>

Now, add to crontab of the user you used for pullnews:

*/5 * * * * /usr/lib/news/bin/pullnews

This will poll the remote server every 5 minutes. Please don't poll a server any more often than that, it can create an unnecessary load on someone else's server.

This will pull messages from the other server to yours. To get your messages out to another server, they must poll you.

I'm tired, so I didn't double check my post. The section above should look like:

         censorship

pullnews will add info to the right of each board name after each poll (date and msg number). Don't change these or remove these as this will interfere with the next poll.

Oops, replace the '192.168.0.220' with the address of the server you are connecting to. If the port is not 119 then, for example, other.server:2119.

right after it displays the legend.

Did you list a server in .pullnews?

The file '.pullnews' (note the dot) should be in a user's home directory.

..pullnews should contain:

<servername:port> <username> <password>
         rocksolid.admin.admin
         rocksolid.shared.dancingelephants
         rocksolid.shared.entertainment
         rocksolid.shared.freenet
         rocksolid.shared.general
         rocksolid.shared.helpdesk
         rocksolid.shared.i2p
         rocksolid.shared.news
         rocksolid.shared.offtopic
         rocksolid.shared.retrobbs
         rocksolid.shared.test
         rocksolid.shared.tor

Then run pullnews as the same user that has .pullnews in their home dir.

You can test username:port with Thunderbird (which I think you are doing) just to make sure it is accessible.

Also, there are no '<' '>' in the actual .pullnews file, just the info.

The server you need to connect to is the inn server here:

cm6lpd....3hcq.b32.i2p

Which is the address I previously sent by mail.

Pullnews is there, the file is with the dot, and the server is accessible. The commandline is run by the user who owns the file.
This is the pullnews file:

# Format: (date is epoch seconds)
# hostname [username password]
#         group date high
ipaddressofi2ptunnel:portnumber username password
rocksolid.shared.test

inn2 does connect to the i2p tunnel, I can see that. It just does not get any messages from the server (in contrast to Thunderbird, which works with the same credentials). Strange...

I can connect from the same box to your inn server via telnet, so the connection as such works. I cannot authenticat to the server, but that might be due to telnet (I always get a 502). But anyway, the connection is there, and if I use Thunderbird, I can connect and authenticate just fine. Just my inn2 cannot do it.
Do I need to edit some settings beyond readers.conf,.pullnews and inn2.conf ?

Regards

wed

I just modified the i2p tunnel to try to avoid inn2 thinking you're connecting from 127.0.0.1. Don't know if that will help, but we'll see.

I also just sent you a different user/pass via email.

oh man, finally I figured out why pullnews was not working before. It is so stupid. The manual for pullnews can be found here: https://www.eyrie.org/~eagle/software/inn/docs-2.5/pullnews.html

And it says: --------------------------
 The full syntax is:

    <host> [<username> <password>]
            <group> [<time> <high>]
            <group> [<time> <high>]

where the <host> line must not have leading whitespace and the <group> lines must. --------------------------
Whitespace. Fuck. Otherwise the line is not recognized.
