I tested it on my WinXP machine.

  dg8_11_3.exe -vv ADMIN=me@here -P8119 SERVER=nntp MOUNT="= nntp://-.-/"

It started without problem.  Then posted an article by hand with
telnet on unix (or on Cygwin).

  % telnet dg-winxp 8119
200 dg-winxp PROXY NNTP server DeleGate/8.11.3 READY.

Hmm.  So I examined the active file of the newsgroup "" at
DGROOT/etc/news/groups/ (DGROOT is "C:/Program Files/DeleGate"
by default) It was like this:

00000 00000 0 X C:/Program Files/DeleGate/cache/nntp/-.-/spool/test/group

Both the drive symbol ":" and the space character is not cared.
So I rewrote it as this and it worked. 

00000 00000 0 X /DeleGate/cache/nntp/-.-/spool/test/group

 |Also for my secound qustion :

 |NNTP-Posting-Host:  , X-Complaints-To: abuse@my.. .
 |Is there some example ?

You can use FTOSV to attach a filter program to rewrite data outgoing
to server, and use CFIscript as a simple rewriting script program, like
the following parameter and script file:


[the content of DGROOT/etc/post.cfi]
Output-Header:NNTP-Posting-Host:\r\nX-Complaints-To: abuse@my..

But I found that, with FTOSV on Windows, the DeleGate does not disconnect
the connection with the client after QUIT.  This can be problem for
some NNTP clients.
