I'm running Leafnode as an easy-to-use NNTP server and am considering switching from pan as news reader to trn4. To configure trn4 I set it to, effectively,
localhost. Specifically, the FQDN which leafnode uses, which is also the hostname for the system. Presumably trn4 doesn't use DNS to try and resolve the FQDN but realizes that this is
localhost in this case. That's working fine.
How can I add additional news servers? Specifically,
news.gmane.org so that I have the most recent postings, which Leafnode might not have. Is the trn4 news host configuration file even
/etc/news/server? The man page was too long.
