[leafnode-list] NNTP user authentication
I allow several people to slurp off of my leafnode. Most of them have
static IPs, so I just create a firewall rule to let them get at it.
However, a couple of them do not. For one of them - a windows user -
using ssh to authenticate and tunnel his nntp is rather inconvenient.
I would like to be able to have leafnode authenticate users either by
username/password (like what it can use when sucking news from a "real"
server) or by IP. Is anyone working on anything like this?
Oh, GOOD sigmonster!
