I wish to test whether or not the same POSTing blocks when it is
done via DeleGate while succeeding when it is done directly.
I thought a possible difference between them is that, the "."
line is sent packed in a same TCP packet with the POSTed message
via DeleGate, but it could be sent in a different packet in
direct connection.
And the patch I posted before does split the packet by flushing
output stream buffer to server before forwarding the "." line.

Thank you.  It is confirmed that the DeleGate is blocking in
the path ...->NNTP_POST()->fgetsFS()->... as I expected.

It seems that your host of DeleGate is not permitted from the server.
Doesn't it happen with "telnet theServer 119" ?
