    Have a look at Jbinup. It's Java based too so it's crossplatform supported with a platorm of Java.

    - GUI giving easy access to many functionalities
    - Multiserver capability
    - NNTP and NNTPS support
    - No connection limits
    - Sequential Uploading
    - Headercheck after upload
    - Batchfunction for WinRar and Par2
    - All uploads are encoded with the yEnc algorythm
    - Creation of NZB-files after finishing a JBinUp mission is possible
    - command line interface supported (coming soon)
    - Multilanguage Support

    I modified the excellent tool 'newspost' (clean, efficient, command-line, C-based), to do just that, tell me if you are interested.
    The author's site is http://newspost.unixcab.org/ , last update was 6 years ago.

    I'm interested, post a link. Maybe spend the time to create a GUI too?

    As for GUI, no way. The big advantage of this program is its simplicity and LACK of GUI.

    The modified sources, and also the executable, are here:
    http://www.sendspace.com/file/ra2psh

    The additional flag is -g and you give it the name of an nzb file to generate.
    I tested this against astraweb and giganews.
    There is some problem with astraweb, it seems that sometimes, for no apparent reason,
    the server rejects my message-ID and replaces it with its own.
    When this happens, it happens for ALL the parts the file is broken into.
    I must generate the message-ID's myself, since NNTP protocol doesn't give back
    the messsage-ID after a POST (and I didn't want to get into reading back headers).
    I make up the message-ID as per recommendations, with a random string.
    I checked that when this happens, the message-ID is not a duplicate of a previous one.
    It should be noted that this doesn't seem to happen with giganews,
    and also, that it DOES seem to happen also with YencPowerPost-AA (windows).

    If you want a gui, you can run YencPowerPost-AA via wine.. i'm currently doing that and it works great

    Maybe you guys can help me. I'm running Ubuntu 8.04 and I can't get JBinUp or PowerPost to run. JBinUp freezes when I try to change the server settings. I have to kill java to stop it.

    PowerPost won't run via wine for me. It just crashes.

    I'm just looking for something to post binaries with that has a gui. If I could fix those either one of those it would be fine, or if someone could suggest an alternative maybe.

    Sorry about potentially hi-jacking the thread...

    Thanks, I guess I lied when I said I wanted a GUI. This works fine.

    The only "problem" I have is that I think it only uses 1 thread. I can't max my upload. I'm get between 700 and 800kbps and the line is much faster. Any ideas on how to either use more connections or make it go faster? Thanks!

    I wrote a tiny csh script that invokes the program in parallel.
    This assumes you are posting multiple files, like .rar parts.

    You can setenv RELEASE to set the 'release name' (subject line),
    otherwise it is derived from the first file.
    You setenv NEWSGROUP to set the specific newsgroup (it assumes
    it starts with alt.binaries. so for example, setenv NEWSGROUP hdtv)

    It uses 10 parallel connections.

    Code:
    #!/bin/csh
    set fs = ( $* )
    set n = $#fs
    echo $n " files"
    echo "First file: " $fs[1]:r
    
    if ( $?RELEASE ) then
      set rls = $RELEASE
    else
      set rls = $fs[1]:r
    endif
    
    if ( $?NEWSGROUP ) then
      set group = $NEWSGROUP
    else
      set group = alt.binaries.hdtv
    endif
    
    echo subject: $rls
    echo group: $group
    echo interrupt now or live with the results
    sleep 3
    
    
    set x = 1
    while ( $x <= $n )
      echo ======  $x
      set u = $x
      @ v = $u + 9
      while ( $u <= $v && $u <= $n )
         newspost -T 0:00:03 -y -n $group -s $rls $fs[$u] &
         @ u ++
      end
      wait
      @ x += 10
    end
