The RSS plugin has nothing to do with NNTP at all.

You don't need a plugin for NNTP, but you do need Claws Mail to be built with
libetpan support.

Go to /Configuration/Edit Accounts, click the 'New' button to create a new
account. On the initial, Basic page, set the Protocal as 'News (NNTP)', fill
in the rest of the details as necessary.

This will create a new top-level folder in the folder list on the left,
called something like 'my.nntp.server (News)'. Right-click this folder and
choose 'Subscribe to newsgroup'. On the dialogue you see, click the 'Refresh'
button. Then select the newsgroups that you want to susbcribe to, and click
the 'OK' button.

with regards
