Nntp2nntp proxy allow you to use your NNTP Account from multiple systems, each with own user name and password. It fully supports SSL and you can also limit the access to proxy with SSL certificates. nntp2nntp proxy is very simple and pretty fast.

Warning

Whilst we know of no nntp2nntp security issues the upstream code for this project has received no changes since 06.08.15 and is likely abandoned permanently. For this reason we strongly recommend you do not make this application public facing and if you must do so other layers of security and SSL should be considered an absolute bare minimum requirement. We see this proxy being used primarily on a LAN so that all the users NNTP applications can share a common set of internal credentials allowing for central managment of the upstream account e.g change provider, server, thread limits for all applications with one global config change.

Supported Architectures

Our images support multiple architectures such as x86-64, arm64 and armhf. We utilise the docker manifest for multi-platform awareness. More information is available from docker here and our announcement here.

Simply pulling linuxserver/nntp2nntp should retrieve the correct image for your arch, but you can also pull specific arch images via tags.

The architectures supported by this image are:

armhf

arm32v6-latest

Usage

Here are some example snippets to help you get started creating a container from this image.

docker

docker create \
--name=nntp2nntp \
-e PUID=1000 \
-e PGID=1000 \
-e PUID=<yourUID> \
-e PGID=<yourGID> \
-e TZ=Europe/London \
-p 1563:1563 \
-v <path to data>:/config \
--restart unless-stopped \
linuxserver/nntp2nntp

docker-compose

Compatible with docker-compose v2 schemas.

---
version: "2"
services:
nntp2nntp:
image: linuxserver/nntp2nntp
container_name: nntp2nntp
environment:
- PUID=1000
- PGID=1000
- PUID=<yourUID>
- PGID=<yourGID>
- TZ=Europe/London
volumes:
- <path to data>:/config
ports:
- 1563:1563
restart: unless-stopped

Parameters

Docker images are configured using parameters passed at runtime (such as those above). These parameters are separated by a colon and indicate <external>:<internal> respectively. For example, -p 8080:80 would expose port 80 from inside the container to be accessible from the host's IP on port 8080 outside the container.

Ports (-p)

Parameter

Function

1563

will map the container's port 1563 to port 1563 on the host

Environment Variables (-e)

Env

Function

PUID=1000

for UserID - see below for explanation

PGID=1000

for GroupID - see below for explanation

PUID=<yourUID>

specify your UID

PGID=<yourGID>

specify your GID

TZ=Europe/London

Specify a timezone to use EG Europe/London.

Volume Mappings (-v)

Volume

Function

/config

this will store config on the docker host

User / Group Identifiers

When using volumes (-v flags), permissions issues can arise between the host OS and the container, we avoid this issue by allowing you to specify the user PUID and group PGID.

Ensure any volume directories on the host are owned by the same user you specify and any permissions issues will vanish like magic.

In this instance PUID=1000 and PGID=1000, to find yours use id user as below:

$ id username
uid=1000(dockeruser) gid=1000(dockergroup) groups=1000(dockergroup)

Application Setup

Edit sample config file config/nntp2nntp.conf with upstream provider details and rename the local users.

New user passwords can be created by running the password hash generator

docker exec -it nntp2nntp /usr/bin/nntp2nntp.py pass

entering the desired password and copying the resulting string to the relevant user line in /config/nntp2nntp.conf

Example with a user called Dave and with a password of password

Dave = 5e884898da28047151d0e56f8dc6292773603d0d6aabbdd62a11ef721d1542d8
