php NNTP server?

P: n/a
Ok, I do NOT want to *connect* to a NNTP server from PHP, I want to -
from a NNTP client - connect to a NNTP server that is powered by PHP.

Specifically, I want articles, forum posts and such from my web site
to be readable via a NNTP interface. So, when the client connects to
my server, a hierarchy might look like this:

sandman.forum.gaming
sandman.forum.media
sandman.articles.weblogs

And so on... Upon reading any such group, all articles show up in a
threaded manner (i.e. replies/comment).

Any ideas?

I think it won't use any PHP application. It depend on your mailing
list / news server. NNTP can be set at your mailing server / news
server.

Have you considered replacing the storage layer of an existing NNTP
engine? In addition to inn, you might want to take a look at leafnode.

It's not written in PHP (but Python) but it does seem to be written with
your purposes in mind:

Yeah, but I still need to add intelligence in between the nntp server
and the database in the shape of php scripts.

I.e. when someone posts a usenet message, it needs to be formatted in
a very specific way and so on. Same goes for reformatting the data to
be displayed as a nntp post and so on.

you might look at something like a program called nntp//rss. i use e107 for
my sites. i have nntp//rss set up to pull the news articles from my sites
and make them available to a nntp reader such as oe or any other standard
reader. the sites show up in the reader much like newsgroups for a regular
news server. if interested, i'll post a link so you can see what i'm
referring to.

Sure, I'd be interested in seeing that... As it is now, I'm using
socket_create() and is about to re-implement the entire nntp protocol
by myself... Phew. :)

server is ceg.sytes.net on port 120. most of the "groups" that show up are
my sites. a couple are self-explanatory by their names and come from other
areas. you should be able to pick these up with most any standard news
reader program.

try server porch.sytes.net or server anandaquest.org. you might have caught
it during the storm we had...knocked our power out...we live out in the
mountains and are doing well to have electricity and indoor plumbing.
