nntpsend.ctl - list of sites to feed via nntpsend
The file <pathetc in inn.conf>/nntpsend.ctl specifies the default list
of sites to be fed by nntpsend(8).
Comments begin with a number sign (‘‘#’’) and continue through the end
of the line. Blank lines and comments are ignored. All other lines
should consist of four fields separated by a colon.
The first field is the name of the site as specified in the newsfeeds
The second field should be the hostname or IP address of the remote
The third field, if non-empty, specifies the default head truncation
size of site’s batchfile. If this field is empty, no truncation is
performed. This field may be of the form ‘‘maxsize-truncsize’’, in
which case it is passed to shrinkfile as ‘‘-m maxsize -s truncsize’’;
otherwise it is of the form ‘‘truncsize’’, in which case it is passed
as ‘‘-s truncsize’’.
The fourth field specifies some default flags passed to innxmit(8).
The flag ‘‘-a’’ is always given to innxmit and need not appear here.
If no ‘‘-t timeout’’ flag is given in this field or on the nntpsend
command line, ‘‘-t 180’’ will be given to innxmit.
