NAME
       cyrfetchnews - retrieve new articles from peer and feed to Cyrus

SYNOPSIS
       cyrfetchnews [ -C config-file ] [ -s servername[:port] ]
                 [ -n ] [ -y ] [ -w wildmat ] [ -f tstampfile ]
                 [ -a authname [ -p password ] ] peername

DESCRIPTION
       Cyrfetchnews retrieves news articles from a peer news server and feeds
       them to a Cyrus server.  Cyrfetchnews connects to the peer specified by
       peername, requests new articles since the time stored in tstampfile and
       feeds them to servername.

       Cyrfetchnews reads its configuration options out of the imapd.conf(5)
       file unless specified otherwise by -C.

OPTIONS
       -C config-file
              Read configuration options from config-file.

       -s servername
              Hostname of the Cyrus server (with optional port) to which
              articles should be fed.  Defaults to "localhost:nntp".

       -n     Don't use the NEWNEWS command.  Cyrfetchnews will keep track of
              the high and low water marks for each group and use them to
              fetch new articles.

       -y     Use 4 instead of 2 digits for year. 2-digits are rfc977- but not
              y2k-compliant.

       -w wildmat
              Wildmat pattern specifying which newsgroups to search for new
              articles.  Defaults to "*".

       -f tstampfile
              File in which to read/write the timestamp of when articles were
              last retrieved.  Defaults to "newsstamp" located in configdir as
              specified by the configuration options.

       -a authname
              Userid to use for authentication.

       -p password
              Password to use for authentication.
