SEND-UUCP(8)		    System Manager's Manual		  SEND-UUCP(8)

NAME
       send-nntp, send-ihave - send Usenet articles to remote site

SYNOPSIS
       send-nntp  [  -d	 ]  sitename:hostname |	sitename [ sitename:hostname |
       sitename	..  ]

       send-ihave [ -d ] sitename:hostname | sitename  [  sitename:hostname  |
       sitename	..  ]

DESCRIPTION
       The  send-*  utilities are scripts that process the batch files written
       by innd(8) to send Usenet articles to a remote NNTP site.

       The sites to be fed may be specified by giving sitename hostname	 pairs
       on the command line.

       The sitename is the label the site has in the newsfeeds file, the host-
       name is the real	hostname of the	remote site, a FQDN  (Fully  Qualified
       Domain  Name).	Normally,  the sitename	and the	hostname are the same,
       and as such don't have to be specified as sitename:hostname  pairs  but
       just as a sitename.

       send-nntp starts	an innxmit to send the articles	to the remote site.

       send-ihave  encapsulates	 the  articles in an ihave control message and
       uses inews to send the articles to a  to.sitename  pseudo-group.	 Using
       send-ihave  is  discouraged, nobody uses	it anymore and even the	author
       of this manpage is unsure as to how it actually works or	used to	work.

       send-* expect that the  batchfile  for  a  site	is  named  _pathoutgo-
       ing in inn.conf_/sitename.   To prevent batchfile corruption, shlock(1)
       is used to ``lock'' these files.

OPTIONS
       -d     The ``-d'' flag causes nntpsend to send output to	stdout	rather
	      than the log file	_pathlog in inn.conf_/_program-name_.log.

NOTES
       You  should  probably not use send-nntp,	but innfeed, or	if that	is not
       possible, nntpsend.

       The usual flags for a batch file	for send-nntp are ``Tf,Wfm''.
