The news transport is the part of the system that stores the articles and the lists of which groups are available and so on, and provides those articles on request to users. It receives news (either posted locally or from a newsfeed site), files it, and passes it on to any downstream sites. Each article is kept for a period of time and then deleted (this is known as `expiry').
By default Debian's INN will install in a fairly simple `local-only' configuration.
In order to make use of the services provided by INN you'll have to use a user-level newsreader program such as trn. The newsreader is the program that fetches articles from the server and shows them to the user, remembering which the user has seen so that they don't get shown again. It also provides the posting interface for the user.

This is nnrpd-actived. I found that one of the huge bottlenecks in an nnrp-oriented INN system is creating new sessions. I spent some time and tracked down one of the big time-consumers... hashing the active file. Even with sharedactive, each client would hash the contents into a local hash table, and with a very large active file, this took an appreciable amount of time. My CPU's could do it more»
