I've been trying to post some test files with newspost but get the following error...
Not much to go on I know, sorry...Code:me@my-laptop:~/ys$ newspost -i news.mysip.com -u firstname.lastname@example.org -f email@example.com -n alt.binaries.test.files -y -s TYS_Test /home/me/ys/*.part* /home/me/ys/*.par* WARNING: duplicate filename /home/me/ys/TYSSubsplus45avi.part1.rar - IGNORING WARNING: duplicate filename /home/me/ys/TYSSubsplus45avi.part2.rar - IGNORING WARNING: duplicate filename /home/me/ys/TYSSubsplus45avi.part3.rar - IGNORING WARNING: duplicate filename /home/me/ys/TYSSubsplus45avi.part4.rar - IGNORING WARNING: duplicate filename /home/me/ys/TYSSubsplus45avi.part5.rar - IGNORING Calculating CRCs... done From: firstname.lastname@example.org Newsgroups: alt.binaries.test.files Subject: TYS_Test 10 Files: 89.3 MB Yencoding 89.3 MB total and posting to news.myisp.com Posting in 1 second...

I finally got it running:
following Martje_001's original post I installed newspost,
made a folder with the file to be posted in it
using that folder as my working directory, I issued the following commands in terminal:
this makes 25MB rar files (with the correct usenet naming convention) of everything in the folder (remove the handles < and >)Code:rar a <filename with filetype omitted> -v25m -m0
In the working directory:
this creates 7 10% par files of the rars in the folderCode:par2create -r10 -n7 <filename with filetype omitted> *.rar*
I then removed the original file from the folder, leaving the nfo file, the rars and the pars
Then, using that folder as my working directory, I issued the following commands:
(include the single quotes around the Nickname)Code:newspost -d -i news.myisp.com -f email@example.com -F 'My Nickname'
This sets the default newsserver, email address and Name for newspost
Then issued the posting command
***this yencodes and posts everything in the working folder so make sure your working directory is correct before posting the contents of your home folder !!!!****Code:newspost -n alt.my.group.name -y -s Subject_Line_of_My_Posting *

I can't believe the fantastic intelligent support for Linux now and they are so out of the loop with the Usenet. and Oh Ya support for SSL port 563 connections a must now with newsreader/writer/posters. Most of us [especially mine] have all these programs in our systems as Xterminal command line programs and craplications, The GUI developement is a disgrace for these.
I hate the fact that I have 1 windows box [laptop] on hand for when I want to sleuth the newsgroups. Linux can't touch Newbin pro. Reads writes manages corupt files [PAR] a nd auto eYenc upload and download, preview even tells me if the files are Password protected apon commanding a download as not to waist my time.
Auto handles nzb's [Usenet shortcut to files]. and creates them too. I'd pay a hundred dollars for a Linux version of NewsBin pro right now. NO it doesn't fly in Wine, as is most of the case.
Seems as though the linux community really needs a website possible commercial that does all of the intricate manipulations to a binary file attachment needed in order to post to usenet.
It would have to have a "Profile data base " so you enter your usenet account info over an ssl port maybe even need an IPsec key to secure it and then have a powerful web GUI to handle uploads. Of course people that are on the edge of society or in my case paranoia of privacy data mining [spying is immoral etc..] would not like it, but heck, I don't see Linux's developers as having any intention of fixing this Layman's way [GUI] to post to usenet problem. There used to be a Newsgroup service out there that had a web interface but I forget who it was.
Witch in my case may send Openshot video editor and other proggys to the sharts.
This is what happens when one depends on "other" peoples work to make "Their" program work. [As in I-PAD's JAVA crippling] Just a little system upgrade so often causes UN-intended consequences that turn programs into pile of binary bile. A more "Self Contained" attitude has been longing for GUI driven nntp file uploads in linux. Such as Putty, you can run it from a thumb-drive on another box without messing with the other box's OS to get it to work. I use it to create sslh multiplex tunnels to encrypt my internet activity entirely when using a VPN service that supports socks5 tunneling.
Not cheap but worth it. I cringe every time someone writes code that demands SUN JAVA in order for it to work, I wish linux would stick with the GNU/SDK versions of it when they need JAVA.

For those interested I found the package newspost_2.1.1-4_amd64.deb on the website debian-archive at this location :
It is working perfectly on Ubuntu Precise 12.04 amd64 ... Thanks all for the tutorials and all the good stuff.
