We have a strange request from a user to provide a knowledgebase to remote technical people. These techs are often in secured locations (like military installations) where they are not permitted to access the internet, but still need to have access to technical documentation AND a discussion thread where issues have been discovered and reported for each product etc.
Sounds like Usenet, right?
The user has indicated that they would be comfortable with that, and it seems to fit their requirements. But of course IIS 7.x does not have a NNTP module, and I'm having trouble finding a suitable replacement.
What is the best low-footprint Usenet server that can be used as a private in-house solution? DNEWS (http://netwinsite.com/dnews.htm
) seems to be decent based on the demo, but are there any free options out there?
I'm not married to a Windows solution--a Linux package is fine, too. Is there one that I could grab from apt that also has a webmin module?
Basic requirements are:
Easily create the various groups (e.g. product.1 etc.)
Easily create users
Allow indefinite caching
I appreciate the help.
