HELLO \- perform initial conversation with a newsserver (used by sn news system)
is the program that gets executed for every newsserver by the
.I snget(8)
program. There is a connection to the newsserver, but nothing has been sent
or received yet. This program handles the initial contact. File descriptors
6 is used for data coming from the newsserver, and descriptor 7 is used for
data going to the newsserver.
This program is used by the sn news system.
You never have to use this program yourself. However, when a newsserver is
non-standard, you may have to modify a copy of it for that server.
Newsserver-specific copies should go into /var/spool/sn/.outgoing/HOST

.B sn(8)
POST \- Handle a part of posting messages (used by sn news system)
is the program that handles a part of posting messages to a newsserver.
It is executed by snntpd, after a POST command was sent by a newsreader.
.B snntpd
snntpd performs some checks, and runs
to do some additional checks. If the message is considered postable by
POST, the actual posting is handled by
.B snsend.
This program is used by the sn news system. You probably never have to use this
program yourself.

Description: Small NNTP server for leaf sites
sn is a small news system for small sites serving perhaps a few
dozen newsgroups, and with a slow connection to the internet.
It is similar to leafnode (, by Arnt Gulbrandsen).
The target user is a home or SOHO with a single modem connection
to the Internet, maybe running IP masq or similar, and serving a
few workstations.
