Alternate NNTP Server
« on: 2013-06-25, 11:10:35 PM »
I have just added the ability to use an alternate NNTP server for postprocessing. This would allow you to use all NNTP connections form 1 provider for binaries and backfill and use all the NNTP from another provider for postprocess.
Change www/config.php and add the second provider details and the select yes in admin edit.

Code: [Select]
define('NNTP_USERNAME', 'username');
define('NNTP_PASSWORD', 'password');
define('NNTP_SERVER', 'news.newshosting.com');
define('NNTP_PORT', '443');
define('NNTP_SSLENABLED', true);

define('NNTP_USERNAME_A', 'username');
define('NNTP_PASSWORD_A', 'password);
define('NNTP_SERVER_A', 'ssl-eu.astraweb.com');
define('NNTP_PORT_A', '443');
define('NNTP_SSLENABLED_A', true);

Thanks for adding this feature. Loving nZEDb so far. One question though can I use this for post processing as well as the main server or just instead of?

Lets say you have one very good usp but lack of connections, for example 4 high speed - then you can use those for your update binaries x 2 and for backfill x 2. If you then also have another cheap 30 connections low speed usp - then you can setup those as the alternative nntp for use for postprocessing as jonnyboy also announce.

Does that make sense ? I use it that way myself..

Thanks for the clarification was hoping to use both for post processing like in the tmux script jonnyboy wrote for newznab.
