Add a many-to-one plug-gw in your /usr/local/etc/netperm-table configured
plug-gw: port nntp 10.0.0.* -plug-to your.news.server -port nntp
Your internal network. Machine you read news from.
This allows any machine on the 10.0.0.* network to plug through to the
server your.news.server on port 119. Then point your news readers to read
news off of the firewall. By connecting to the firewall on the nntp port,
the plug-gw proxy will open a connection to the external news server
your.news.server, and you should be good to go.
