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/news in order to add new groups.

ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES

SNROOT If this is set and is not empty, the value is used in place of /var/spool/news, the default news spool directory.

  Directory where articles will be stored.

/var/spool/news/newsgroup/.created

/var/spool/news/newsgroup/.outgoing
  If server is specified, is a symlink to /var/spool/news/.outgoing/server:port, which is a directory, created if it does not already exist. If server is not specified, no file /var/spool/news/newsgroup/.outgoing will be created. See also snsend.
