 Could have been me, I compiled and ran INND for a little while on
 an 030/25 under on of the first NetBSD1.0 revs.

 Worked nicely, if a bit slow.

 You are talking about something which is a problem for a newsreader, not
 for INN.

 It is your newsreader which determines which nntp server to contact, and
 not the server side software. INN does not have any capability for doing
 what you describe on its own.
