linux default iconNNTPCache Publisher's description

NNTPCache is a proxy cache newsgroups.

NNTPCache is a proxy cache newsgroups.

NNTPCache (efficiently) executes on the localhost pretending to be an NNRP news reading server. In fact, what it does is pass certain NNTP commands through to real (remote and possibly local) news-servers based on various pattern matching rules.

NNTPCache then takes the output from those servers and caches & indexes it in funky ways (much case specific magic goes into this). The next time such information is asked for, or other information which can be logically inferred from the previously collated information, it is sent directly from the cache, without consulting the remote servers.

NNTPCache can transparently merge local newsgroups & multiple remote feeds (usually handled by INN) with remote NNRPD and NNTPCache servers to create mind-bogglingly large "virtual" newsfeeds, without having to negotiate for standard feeds or allocating anything like bandwidth or drive space normally required (normally around 3-10G/day).

NNTPCache is an obsessive SPAM killer. NNTPCache has full support for cryptographically signed NoCem messages, and if enabled, actively monitors news.lists.filters and alt.nocem.misc for NoCem SPAM advisories. Tagged SPAM message ID's are then transparently filtered from NNTPCache traffic.

NNTPCache can also act selectively as an intelligent chrooted firewall NNTP application proxy and supports full RFC931/ident, source address and newsgroup access controls with quite a reasonable degree of granularity.

NNTPCache saves IMMENSE amounts of bandwidth (we were quite astounded to see just how much bandwidth news uses - on our network, news accounted for more IP traffic than everything else combined (though we're not sure if this says more about the authors' proclivities or network traffic statistics in general.

NNTPCache also saves truly huge amounts of drive space (if you are talking about a full feed - as of writing that's around 3 - 10Gb a day). With NNTPCache, startup times for news readers become limited o
