3.11. The QUIT command

3.11.1. QUIT


The server process acknowledges the QUIT command and then closes the connection to the client. This is the preferred method for a client to indicate that it has finished all its transactions with the NNTP server.

If a client simply disconnects (or the connection times out, or some other fault occurs), the server should gracefully cease its attempts to service the client.

3.11.2. Responses

   205 closing connection - goodbye!
