A New "News Server" Machine

  Dietrich Wiegandt IT/DIS

This autumn we will be replacing the aging and overloaded news server machine, dxnews, by a more powerful machine which also uses the latest software. This software should allow us to control better abuse of at least the CERN news groups. To make the changeover as smooth as possible, please make sure that the NNTP server specified in the configuration file of your news reading program is not the real host,, but its current nickname:

This nickname will be moved to the new machine once it is run in and any initial problems have been solved.
