What Is NNTP Service?
- USENET is an international network of newsgroups and discussion forums. It has been a part of the Internet since 1980.
- The official standards of the NNTP are outlined in its document, RFC 977.
- USENET was originally powered by the UNIX to UNIX copy protocol (UUCP), but it has been replaced by NNTP.
- All computers running Windows servers have an NNTP service installed to allow that Windows server to administer its own USENET style newsgroups for the local network.
