Some points:

1. Last time I checked VSNL, it had blocked NNTP port (119) to all
   sites except news.vsnl.net.in.  And their news server had neglible
   groups and pretty early expiry of articles.  However, this might
   have been changed.

2. If you need a news server of your own, try leafnode instead of
   inn.  It has some nice features which makes it useful for small

Hope this helps,
