News ServerΒΆ

Zax-type nym servers deliver messages to their nyms by posting them on a news group. aampy is the tool underneath nymphemeral that downloads those messages via a news server. The default news server configured in nymphemeral.cfg is set to localhost, port 119. This default is useful if you use stunnel to encrypt the connection between localhost:119 and your actual news server, exactly what was done on Connections. If you followed that section, you do not need to configure anything.


nymphemeral should be ready to tunnel your news feed via Tor!

If you want to connect directly to the news server, you should edit nymphemeral.cfg and change the address and port of the news server appropriately. Unfortunately, the python 2.7 nntplib module does not support connections over SSL/TLS.
