NNCP uses following files/directories you should be aware of:
It also contains temporary files (in tmp/ directory), possibly left alone, if some of the commands failed and prematurely exited and that should be cleaned from time to time.
Partly transferred files are stored with .part suffix. And possibly they also require cleanup if they are completely lost.
Also it can contain .seen files, that should be cleaned too from time to time.
All of that cleaning tasks can be done with nncp-rm utility.
If you want to share single spool directory with multiple grouped
Unix users, then you can
setgid it and assure that umask
is group friendly. For convenience you can set umask
globally for invoked NNCP commands in the configuration file. For
$ chgrp nncp /usr/local/etc/nncp.hjson /var/spool/nncp $ chmod g+r /usr/local/etc/nncp.hjson $ chmod g+rwxs /var/spool/nncp $ echo 'umask: "007"' >> /usr/local/etc/nncp.hjson
Example newsyslog’s entry:
/var/spool/nncp/log 644 7 100 * BCYN
*/1 * * * * nncp-reass -all -noprogress
For example you can use daemontools for that task to run them under probably existing uucp user:
# mkdir -p /var/service/.nncp-toss/log # cd /var/service/.nncp-toss # cat > run <<EOF #!/bin/sh -e exec 2>&1 exec setuidgid uucp /usr/local/bin/nncp-toss -cycle 10 EOF # cat > log/run <<EOF #!/bin/sh -e exec setuidgid uucp multilog t ./main EOF # chmod -R 755 /var/service/.nncp-toss # mv /var/service/.nncp-toss /var/service/nncp-toss
uucp stream tcp6 nowait nncpuser /usr/local/bin/nncp-daemon nncp-daemon -quiet -inetd
daemontoolsdaemon under UCSPI-TCP:
# mkdir -p /var/service/.nncp-daemon/log # cd /var/service/.nncp-daemon # cat > run <<EOF #!/bin/sh -e exec envuidgid nncpuser tcpserver -DRHU -l 0 0 uucp \ /usr/local/bin/nncp-daemon -quiet -inetd EOF # cat > log/run <<EOF #!/bin/sh -e exec setuidgid uucp multilog t ./main EOF # chmod -R 755 /var/service/.nncp-daemon # mv /var/service/.nncp-daemon /var/service/nncp-daemon
