Nnrpd is a NNTP server which is more suitable for people reading/posting
news than dealing with a news feed. Innd will spawn one of these off for
each machine that connects that is not listed in hosts.nntp.
If someone is having trouble posting/canceling news then it is likely
that the problem is something to do with inews or nnrpd.
You can change how paranoid nnrpd is about weither you are allowd to
run a command without a password by editing the table in
nnrpd/nnrpd.c in the inn sources and recompiling.
