NNTP

The Network News Transfer Protocol (NNTP) exchanges news articles over a network. Whenever you run a news reader, it uses the NNTP protocol to read and post news articles.

An NNTP server program is run on a computer client computers can connect to. The NNTP protocol is text-based: all communications between the client and server use ASCII text. The NNTP protocol is similar to the SMTP mail protocol we discussed in the previous chapter. Clients send requests or news articles, and the server responds with responses and possibly a news article. News articles are structured similar to Internet mail messages; the body of the article follows a list of headers.
