Hi,
 Does anyone know of a news server for linux that feeds using NNRP? (feeds off other news servers, but acting as a client, in respect to the server).  Been looking around quite a bit but havent found anything.

You probably want to use a regular news server (ie. INN, C-News) and then use a download/upload program with that to suit your needs.  postit (upload) and newsflash (download) have pretty good reputations and are quite simple.  They are available from:
http://franck.pc.uni-koeln.de/~markus/
[The page is in German btw]

Other packages that come to mind include suck, slurp.

If you don't want a heavyweight news server, try leafnode which also comes with transmission utilities and is much simpler than INN.  You can find out more about leafnode from:

Hope this helps,

Dave

personally, i use suck (i think you can get it from sunsite in /pub/linux/system/news/transport)
It acts as a client to get news and store it on the local news server.

Reposting my comment (amended) as a proposed answer, as there's been no more activity on this and I think it's _reasonably_ definitive :-)

Other packages that come to mind include suck, slurp.  I use suck myself (with INN).  Personally, I use nntpsend/innxmit to send my outgoing articles but this requires NNTP peer access, so may not be possible.  I really would recommend using Postit, which I've heard good things about.

If you don't want a heavyweight news server, try leafnode which also comes with transmission utilities (something called fetch, which works with NNRP) and is much simpler than INN.  You can find out more about leafnode from:
