NNTP Protocol Overview

NNTP Protocol Overview The Network News Transfer Protocol (NNTP) is documented in RFC 977. NNTP is a request-reply protocol in the style of SMTP or FTP. Unlike mail, news does not require separate protocols for user-to-host and host-to-host exchanges. NNTP is used in all cases. NNTP has facilities to support reading newsgroups, posting new articles, and transferring articles between news servers.
