NNTPspider

NNTPspider searches for freely accessible NNTP servers (free news servers) by using information from the message headers. This search starts with at least one default newsserver that you can access, usually the one at your ISP. It reads the Path: lines in the headers in order to find more news servers. All the servers that are found are checked for public access and queried for a list of supplied newsgroups. This results in a quite complete list of all news servers currently availiable.
