FNTP 0.2.0 - Freenet News Transfer Protocol
« on: September 07, 2007, 06:31:08 PM »

What is FNTP?
FNTP is a cross-platform C++ application designed to transport messages between Freenet and any standard NNTP client. FNTP is compatible with the Frost message format so that the two clients can send and receive messages with each other.

What can it do?
Non-exhaustive list of features:

    * Data stored in sqlite3 database
    * Most required RFC 3977 commands implemented
    * Send and receive messages from keyed and unkeyed boards
    * Verify signatures of incoming messages
    * Sign outgoing messages

this is the Freenet 0.5 version right? I notice a lot of people are posting information on 0.7+ only clients here.

Remember, kids, Freenet 0.5 is the One True Freenet.
