Read the INSTALL file.

That should be leafnode, not nntp, as mentionend in the INSTALL file.

leafnode-1.9.x does not employ authinfo, so you are encouraged to change
the settings  in hosts.{allow,deny} to something restrictive  or look at
xinetd.  leafnode-2.beta so far  has authinfo simple,  but I would still
recommend [x]inetd protection nonetheless, since user names and passwords
are sent unencrypted.
