       nntpd - NNTP server process

       nntpd [ -C config-file ] [ -U uses ] [ -T timeout ] [ -D ]
	     [ -s ] [ -r ] [ -f ] [ -p ssf ]

       Nntpd  is a NNTP server.	 It accepts commands on its standard input and
       responds on its standard output.	 It MUST  invoked  by  master(8)  with
       those descriptors attached to a remote client connection.

       Nntpd  reads  its  configuration	 options out of the imapd.conf(5) file
       unless specified otherwise by -C.  The optional newsprefix option spec‐
       ifies  a	 prefix	 to be prepended to newsgroup names to make the corre‐
       sponding IMAP mailbox names.  The optional newspostuser	option	speci‐
       fies  the  special  userid  to  be used when contructing the To: header
       address for following up to articles when read via IMAP.	 The  optional
       newspeer	 option specifies the fully qualified hostname of the upstream
       news server to which  articles  are  fed.   The	optional  allownewnews
       option  enables	the  NNTP  NEWNEWS  command.  NOTE: For servers with a
       large volume of articles, the NEWNEWS command can be expensive.

       If the directory log/user exists under the directory specified  in  the
       configdirectory	configuration  option, then nntpd will create protocol
       telemetry logs for sessions authenticating as user.  The telemetry logs
       will  be	 stored in the log/user directory with a filename of the nntpd

       -C config-file
	      Read configuration options from config-file.

       -U uses
	      The maximum number of times that the process should be used  for
	      new connections before shutting down.  The default is 250.

       -T timeout
	      The  number of seconds that the process will wait for a new con‐
	      nection before shutting down.  Note that a  value	 of  0	(zero)
	      will disable the timeout.	 The default is 60.

       -D     Run external debugger specified in debug_command.

       -s     Serve  NNTP  over	 SSL  (nntps).	 All data to and from nntpd is
	      encrypted using the Secure Sockets Layer.

       -r     Only allow NNTP reader commands.	Permitted clients will only be
	      allowed to read/post articles.

       -f     Only allow NNTP feeder commands.	Permitted clients will only be
	      allowed to feed articles (no reading).

       -p ssf Tell nntpd that an external  layer  exists.   An	SSF  (security
	      strength	factor)	 of  1	means  an  integrity  protection layer
	      exists.  Any higher SSF implies some form of privacy protection.
