Add an Active List File to the Server

Before you create a newsfeed to circulate newsgroup articles, you need to create a list of the newsgroups to which you want to subscribe. This list is called an active list file and it allows you to specify the newsgroups to which you subscribe.

To add an active list file to the server:

  1. Use a text editor such as Notepad to create a file with the following lines:
    215 start
    newsgroup
    newsgroup
    .
    
    Newsgroup is the name of the newsgroup to which you want to subscribe. You can list only one newsgroup on each line, but the list can contain as many lines as you want.
  2. To add the newsgroups in your active list file to the server, run the Rgroup.vbs script in the Inetsrvr directory with the following options:
    Rgroup.vbs -t l -a <filename>
