MCNTP is a proctocol and an implementation of that protocol to exchange NetNews articles between servers in a bandwidth-friendly way. The package contains the complete suite of tools and is ready to run with a news server that uses the classical spool concept (such as INN 1.x). As of 1.2, there is also support for the INN 2.x storage API.
