The News Network Transfer Protocol (NNTP) is used to build applications that access Usenet, a public discussion forum made up of various news groups. The Distinct NNTP component allows you to read, post or list news items in your application. You will be able to navigate through all the available network news groups on a server and to retrieve or post news articles. A customized application could automatically sort news articles into categories based on the subject to save the user time scanning through many irrelevant articles.

SOCKS support is embedded so that users can connect from the local machine to the remote server through a firewall proxy.
