News Server Information

Hardware and Software used in association with the News Server:
GreenNet's server is a Dell Pentium III, running at 1.4 Gighz, with 512 MB of RAM, and four Seagate 18 GB ( 72 GB total disk space), 7200 RPM SCSI hard drives, stripped as a single volume. The News Server software is DNEWS 5.5h2, a third-generation, commercially-supported software, which has tested 300% faster than the more common, first-generation freeware INN. This server uses Microsoft's Windows NT 4.0 SP6 as its operating system. It uses two dedicated circuits (7.1Mb) to the Internet backbone, just for itself, and has off-peak hours access to our multi-homed T3 Internet backbone connection
