A simple newsgroup reader that downloads articles from a newsgroup and posts articles to a newsgroup.
The project is divided into 2 parts. The server (dll) & the client (exe). Both require a reference to the News/X control from [[url removed, login to view]]. The control can be downloaded for free but a nag screen will be displayed.
The server dll is a class that wraps most of the news/x interface, plus extending functionality such as saving news servers, newsgroups and articles to a user-defined hierarchical recordset. The server dll is about 80% complete but needs to debugged and fine-tuned and a couple of features to be completed.
The client exe users the server dll to connect, download groups, articles, post articles, etc. The client is not required to be developed by the coder as this will be done by myself. I would assume the coder will need to code a sample client to test the server functionality.
