Pl. let me know which file, I have to look for. Sorry for that newsbie

My nnrp.access file has 954 IPaddress entry. Rewritting the rule for all
these entries is going to be difficult.
Can the readers.conf file take all these entries.

I had to upgrade because the digital server, we are using, are very old and
maintence cost for this old servers is very very high. Now I am using dell
servers with linux 7.2. I tried to install the INN 1.7.2. in Linux 7.2
without success. Is it not at all possible?. Or can I intall the INN 1.7.2
in the FreeBSD.

Thanks for your input.
