xtra news server

  1. While looking arond for an open news server, it appears that
    news.xtra.co.nz points to newsfeed.freenet.de so does that make it
    international traffic?

    How did you figure that?

    news.xtra.co.nz => 203.96.92.12

    newsfeed.freenet.de => 194.97.5.4, 194.97.5.5, 194.97.5.6, 194.97.5.7
    (194.97.5.4 = newsfeed0.freenet.de)
    (194.97.5.5 = newsfeed1.freenet.de)
    (194.97.5.6 = newsfeed2.freenet.de)
    (194.97.5.7 = newsfeed3.freenet.de)

    According to http://www.networldmap.com/TryIt.htm,
    news.xtra.co.nz is located in Auckland, New Zealand.

    According to http://www.networldmap.com/TryIt.htm,
    newsfeed.freenet.de is located in Dusseldorf, Germany.
