How to Upload / Post to Usenet
4 stars based on
Hi, Because it's a bit hard to post binary files to Usenet with Linux, I decided to make this tutorial. All commands, which you have to run in a terminal, are in code tags.
First install a few programs sudo apt-get install par2 newspost rar 2. Place the files you want to upload in a folder. Most files on Usenet are in rar-files. You can create these rar-files with this command: This is the name of the rar-file. Split the file s to a new rar-archive after 10 MB -m0: Set compression level 0-store Now we can create par files.
Percent par-files you want to create -n7: Number of par-files you want to create "name of par file": Upload your files newspost -i upload. Then it will be something like: I would very much like to use this, but newspost is not in the repositories of Hardy. Can I still use this program? Hi guys, this is a little script to automate the upload: I'm working on this myself, see this: Thank you for you guide.
Rabside, how do i use your script? I get a Cannot create path of temp dir used to post material es: Basename --help didn't help me at all. I have no idea how to adjust the script if it indeed needs that. Thanks for the script but can you help me out of my error message http: I can't upload all the rar-files man newspost a usenet binary posters a directory.
No such file or directory". What can I do to solve this? Hi Stan, Have u checked what directory your terminal is working from? To the left of your cursor and inside square brackets eg. In the end, the best is to operate from inside the actual data directory, so your command starts with the command, rather than a location. Thanks for your reply. I found it out already, I had to remove the man newspost a usenet binary posters.
Hi, Thanks for this, but there is just one problem, is there anyway to open more than 1 thread aka upload more than 1 file at a time as i cant max my server out with just a single thread which means it takes it longer to upload I bet you can figure out how to install: Finally a solution for people man newspost a usenet binary posters use Linux. Exactly what I as lookin for. Is there also a sort of webui for this?
Upload And then you can select all options? Or otherwise another script you can place on a server, so people can upload without SSH Access tx. There's no newspost package for Lucid. Here's how to compile yourself from source: So get the source from http: Go into the unpack directory Try to make it you will get an error: If anyone is interested, I posted the code here, http: The script seems to work for me, but my test posts do not appear in the newsgroup alt.
Posted 10 files I have a question about making par2 files, like number 4 in the opening post. I don't want to explain this: Then I did this and got: What am I doing wrong? I'm a beginner but I don't want to use the graphical version, I want to learn this.
Thanks for the link. Tested nd it works. That's strange, because 'basename' itself can handle it. I don't know the solution; I'm not a bash guru maybe just some extra quotes or parentheses? No files sander athlon Unfortunately newspost doesn't have NZB support. After asked around I found out about newsmangler. It supports multiple connections man newspost a usenet binary posters nzb creation.
Does this script generate par2 file? I see par2 is a commandline option, but the TODO says: Read the par2cmdline source to work out how it decides I've been trying to post some test files with newspost but get the following error Segmentation faultNot much to go on I know, sorry I finally got it running: In the working directory: First install a few programs sudo apt-get install par2 newspost rar2. Files need to be split and yEnc coded automatically and nzb's created with nfo files all integrated in the upload process.
I can't believe the fantastic intelligent support for Linux now and they are so out of the loop with the Usenet. 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 man newspost a usenet binary posters [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. Man newspost a usenet binary posters handles nzb's [Usenet shortcut to files]. 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 man newspost a usenet binary posters linux community really needs a website possible commercial that does all of the intricate manipulations to a binary man newspost a usenet binary posters 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 man newspost a usenet binary posters on the edge of society or in my case paranoia of privacy data mining [spying is immoral etc. 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. 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 man newspost a usenet binary posters create sslh multiplex tunnels to encrypt my internet activity entirely when using a VPN service that supports socks5 tunneling. Not cheap but worth it.

Thanks all for the tutorials and all the good stuff.
