NAME
    public-inbox-nntpd - NNTP server for sharing public-inbox

SYNOPSIS
      public-inbox-nntpd [OPTIONS]

DESCRIPTION
    public-inbox-nntpd provides a read-only NNTP daemon for public-inbox. It
    uses options and environment variables common to all
    public-inbox-daemon(8) implementations.

    The default configuration will never require write access to the
    directory where the public-inbox is stored, so it may be run as a
    different user than the user running public-inbox-watch(1),
    public-inbox-mda(1), or git-fetch(1).

OPTIONS
    See common options in "OPTIONS" in public-inbox-daemon(8). Additionally,
    NNTP-specific behavior for certain options are supported and documented
    below.

    -l, --listen PROTO://ADDRESS/?cert=/path/to/cert,key=/path/to/key
        In addition to the normal "-l"/"--listen" switch described in
        public-inbox-daemon(8), the protocol prefix (e.g. "nntp://" or
        "nntps://") may be specified to force a given protocol.

        For STARTTLS and NNTPS support, the "cert" and "key" may be
        specified on a per-listener basis after a "?" character and
        separated by ",". These directives are per-directive, and it's
        possible to use a different cert for every listener.

    --cert /path/to/cert
        The default TLS certificate for optional STARTTLS and NNTPS support
        if the "cert" option is not given with "--listen".

        If using systemd-compatible socket activation and a TCP listener on
        port 563 is inherited, it is automatically NNTPS when this option is
        given. When a listener on port 119 is inherited and this option is
        given, it automatically gets STARTTLS support.

    --key /path/to/key
        The default private TLS certificate key for optional STARTTLS and
        NNTPS support if the "key" option is not given with "--listen". The
        private key may concatenated into the path used by "--cert", in
        which case this option is not needed.

CONFIGURATION
    These configuration knobs should be used in the public-inbox-config(5)

    publicinbox.<name>.newsgroup
    publicinbox.nntpserver
