If I change the server_args to -S -D -p563, then I can subscribe to 
newsgroups, but I can't see any articles in those groups. If I stop this 
xinetd service, and start this as root:

# /news/bin/nnrpd -S -D -p563

then newsgroup access works behind the firewall. I don't yet know if it 
works through it.
