display newsgroup on my webpage...

Does anyone know of some coding or a tool that will enable me to display the contents of a particular newsgroup on my webpage? I would also like to be able to provide the ability to post to this particular group.

Thanks in advance.

php, just plain html ?

You'll almost certainly need ability to run php/perl/some sort of script on your website, unless you can find a friendly java applet to do it.

A quick search on google for "nntp in a web page" (nntp is the news protocol) gave the following:

After considering the above re: php, perl etc., take a look down the list of software at the section that says 'Perl' or 'Php' in the section heading on that page....it lists software that does what you want.

Hope this helps.
