       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.
