RIght, it's not a function of either trn or leafnode. Trn will work with any
NNTP server, including Leafnode. On my OS, Gentoo, I believe leafnode has a
dependency on xinetd, which is configured as following:


service nntp
        disable         = no
        socket_type     = stream
        protocol        = tcp
        wait            = no
        user            = news
        flags           = REUSE
        server          = /usr/sbin/leafnode
        bind            =
        log_on_failure  += USERID

xinetd is simply started at boot, at leafnode automatically binds to (localhost). Of course your hosts file will have to be sane for it
to work.

I'm sure there are many ways of binding leafnode to localhost, and directing
trn to :)
