You can be reading news in minutes and the web management interface will give you full control of all the features - no tricky config files to struggle with!.Spam Proof. Spammers routinely harvest your users email addresses from newsgroups. SurgeNews includes a unique technology to replace email addresses in headers with ever changing addresses. It then acts as a mail server firewall and only allows responses to the actual news messages to go through to the real email addresses (and only for a fixed time period)Full feed or Pull mode. Run with a 200mbit news feed, a farm of news servers, or use to proxy/cache news groups over a 100Kbit modem for local staff / geographic location, or any combination of proxy/pull cache and full feed.Efficient header pull mode where bodies are only fetched when messages are read by real users, saving huge quantities of bandwidth. Pull from multiple upstream sites!Charge/Control users the way you want to. Control user limits by ip or user, and by day or month usage limits, or by bandwidth. Widearea user limits so limits can apply over a farm of news servers.
