I don't ask the users to do the user authentication & do not have users.cdb
file. I allow all the users coming from the IP addresses listed in the
nnrp.access file to access the news server as our customers include dialup &
leased line & broad band customers.

Can I still use nnrpd_auth.pl & any modification has to done to this file?
Do I have to put the nnrp.access file under /usr/local/news/etc?

I use tradspool. I would like to use CNFS. But can the size of cycbuffs go
more 2GB in RedHat 7.2 because the total size of binaries in my old server
is around 100GB. how many cycbuffs I can use?.

Thanks for your speedy reply.
