Without any details - SPECIFICALLY actual port numbers, which specific
news server, packet details, etc., all speculation is meaningless.
NNTP is a TCP protocol. Depending on the version of traceroute, it may
be using UDP (most *nix versions) or ICMP (b0rken versions - such as
TRACERT.EXE from microsoft), or even TCP (quite rare). Was the news
server _originating_ the packets, or replying to something you were
doing. Note also that UDP is trivial to spoof - so what was in those
packets? What port on "your" side? What did '/bin/netstat -anptu'
As for "unreliable" NNTP, what exactly is that supposed to mean? What
news reader are you using? Pan? How? What distribution/release? Are
you using it native, or is some virtual stuff involved? What ELSE is
