NAME

snnewgroup - create a new sn newsgroup

SYNOPSIS

snnewgroup newsgroup [server] [port]
 

DESCRIPTION

snnewgroup creates newsgroup assigning it an upstream NNTP server of server:port. If port is not specified, defaults to 119. If server is also not specified, newsgroup is created as a local group which is fed only by articles POSTed to it.
 
You will need to be root or own /var/spool/sn in order to add new groups.
 

ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES
