Threaded USENET news reader, based on rn

trn is the most widely-used newsreader on USENET - even to the point of being a de-facto standard. It has a powerful full screen text mode user interface, where most actions are available at the press of a single key. It is highly configurable.

This version of trn reads news from a news server via NNTP (the Network News Transfer Protocol). You must have a news server available - large sites usually provide a site-wide server.

If you install a news server on your system (either containing just local newsgroups or with a partial or full USENET feed) you can configure trn to access it.
