INND Config Problem

        I've just installed RedHat Linux 5.0 and am trying to add news groups in innd. I have looked allover but I can't find the answers.. All I wasn to do is be able to create news groups so that PPL can access , Read, Post, Write to these groups from any news client IE netscape.. Can anyone tell me how to set up the news groups or more spectifcally adding new news groups thanks a million

To add groups you use the ctlinnd program located in /var/lib/news/bin by default.
In your newsgroups file in /var/lib/news is where you can put descriptions.
Basically addind a group is  -
log in as root
cd to /var/lib/news
su to user news
give the command - bin/ctlinnd newgroup <groupe name> <moderated>  <creator's name>
That should set up the group.
Depending on how you set up innd you may also have to setup the nnrp.access file to make sure news readers can attach to the server. This is where control of read, wrote and post is controlled for the server.
