Hi All,

In order to let the clients use NNTP and because I don't want to run a NNTP
server I have set up plug-gw from the TIS toolkit so I don't have to use
masquerading on the SuSEfirewall.

Question is: Can plug-gw safeley be run as a daemon or should it be invoked
by tcpd? I don't want to compromise any security set by the firewall.

Thanx, Peter
