    This guide has been transferred to the Ubuntu Community Wiki:

    https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Leafnode2

    However support is still available in this thread, feel free to ask any questions .

    It is my pleasure! I hope you enjoy this amazing sodtware. A fellow australian has produced a nice macro that places an 'X-NNTP-Proxy'' (leafnode 2' header in slrn which may interest you:

    http://piggo.com/~troy/slrn#custom

    He does not give the full syntax on the page, which is:

    Code:
    define post_hook ()
    {
      set_string_variable ( "custom_headers",
        sprintf ("Message-ID: <%s>\nX-NNTP-Proxy: Leafnode-2 (http://www-dt.e-technik.uni-dortmund.de/~ma/leafnode/beta/)", create_msg_id ()));
    }
    
    define followup_hook()
    {
      set_string_variable ( "followup_custom_headers",
        sprintf ("Message-ID: <%s>\nX-NNTP-Proxy: Leafnode-2 (http://www-dt.e-technik.uni-dortmund.de/~ma/leafnode/beta/)", create_msg_id ()));
    }
    
    define reply_hook()
    {
      set_string_variable ( "reply_custom_headers",
        sprintf ("Message-ID: <%s>\nX-NNTP-Proxy: Leafnode-2 (http://www-dt.e-technik.uni-dortmund.de/~ma/leafnode/beta/)", create_msg_id ()));
    }
    All the very best,

    Andrew

    PS My apologies for giving mangled syntax in the initial post, I have corrected it.

    Hi,

    I have updated the guide to the most stable, recent version of Leafnode-2 and I suspect I shall leave the guide to slumber quietly now. There has been little interest in the guide, which is a great pity as Leafnode-2 is a fantastic piece of software and once setup no trouble to administer.

    I will be available for questions but in the meantime slumber on my least utilised guide .

    All the best,

    Andrew

    Thanks very much for the update on the guide.
    Just to let you know; it's still appreciated, even if not the most popular!

    Thanks for your kind words, I do plan on at the very least testing the guide under Karmic Koala and ensuring that it works there. But thanks again or a little encouragement .

    My pleasure! Good to see that this guide is still being used, as I promised above I intend polishing it a little with the release of Karmic Koala which is only a few weeks away now...

    All the best,

    Hmmm.... unfortunately this version of leafnode-2 does not compile under Karmic Koala. I shall investigate..... Looks like the latest version fails as well, I have posted to leafnode-list.

    I managed to get leafnode up and running easily enough with the leafnode in the official universe repository. It seems to work fine so far, I was curious what benefit your procedure gives?
