News2x uses the nntp-protocol to get news from a specified server, saving it to disk in html-format.
Any URLs within the article's body are replaced by hyperlinks.
The articles themselves are stored in a directory called like the newsgroup they are from, named according to their date followed by their subject. The Table of Contents of all fetched articles is stored in a file called toc.html.
To run the program open a command line and change to the bin directory.
You can fetch the news using the following command:
News2x news://server[:port]/group [days]
days specifies, how many days from now shall be queried
(defaults to 7)
News2x.exe nntp://22.214.171.124:119/unilinz.news 31
If successful, News2x has now placed the fetched news into a newly created directory
