Bulletin Board News Server

Bulletin Board News Server is a (relatively) quick NNTP interface for vBulletin. It reads directly from the MySQL DB and is therefore independent of the Web frontend. It doesn't alter read counters, but "forbidden names", name size limitations, user authentication, and anonymous posting (through a "usenet" user) are implemented. Registered users (either in the vboard or through a proprietary pw hash in the config file) can see the email addresses of others, as far as the owners permit it.

    Release Notes: A mode to feed NNTP (via ihave) to a Newsserver is now supported, thus eliminating the need to stay connected to the client and speak the entire NNTP protocol itself. The drawbacks to this method are a need for a standalone newsserver and the fact that it only works with vb 3.x.
