Looking for ASP application that interfaces with a Newsgroup

P: n/a
Can someone point me to an ASP application that interfaces to a Usenet
newsgroup?

FOR EXAMPLE, I'd like an application that would display the posts here in
microsoft.public.inetserver.general, on a webpage in a forum format (I
wouldn't use an actual Microsoft webpage, it's just an example).

Thanks,

Tony

Why?

There are too many sites already with 'forums' that basically steal traffic
on the back of USENET...

People are better served using NNTP. If you don't want to use NNTP, you
always have Google Groups.

Some people can't use NNTP because of firewall limitations beyond their
control, and some may want to customize or improve on what google does.

True...

But there are already sites out there that do this. Why didn't the OP ask
'Are there any websites that provide newsgroup access other than Google
Groups?"?

Too many site already do these kind of things and unfortunately Google seems
to index them too readily...

[And ironically, you have to pay to access some!]

Google Group doesn't meet the requirements, some of which are legal.

I am way past the "why" phase of the project - "how" is my only concern.

Consider using Perl. It has the tools for this job and is easy to use:

Thanks. I'm hesitant about using Perl since, well, it's another programming
language I'd now have to learn, but I'll check it out.
