Projects / NNTPSwitch


NNTPSwitch is a Linux NNTP content router. It's aimed at high-performance news servers for ISPs and Usenet resellers. NNTPSwitch forwards client connections to multiple backend servers to get its actual articles. Depending on the backend server type, all NNTP commands and extensions are supported, including (remote) authorization. Accounting is supported in a user-friendly matter for data limited NNTP connections.

Access and authentication is now linked to user profiles, which define a set of defaults for groups of users (for example, a virtually hosted ISP). Backend servers can now be load-balanced or configured for failover to improve the general level of service. There were also bugfixes and other smaller enhancements.
