The origin script is a gateway for syncronizing news on usenet servers.
As I can see there are a lot of people who use this script for public
usenet groups. I saw some using it for news.php.net, news.mozilla.org
without being a part of this domains. Besides I have the access rights
for news.chello.at which recognizes me over the domain name I'm using.
Without any access rights I should also get access to a few public
groups. The friend who tried this server without any errors doesn't work
for chello and his box is not a part of chello.
Something is strange here...
Can I bind a socket to an address that is public and has no access
limits? (like public usenet servers as news.php.net or news.mozilla.org)
