Usenet News

Our newsfeed contains only those groups which have been requested by members, but our active file (i.e., list of groups) is quite a lot larger.

If there is a group you would like to read but we do not currently receive it, ask the Newsmaster.

We also receive a feed of Usenet II. These are the "net.*" groups, and cover a fairly wide range of topics.
Please read the Usenet 2 rules before posting.

If after following all the directions in this configuration file you still have problems connecting, these setup tutorials may help you.

If you are able to connect but suffer frequent disconnections then try modifying your modem init string by adding %E2-K1-Q1 and/or attempting a K-connect (in place of ATDphone number enter ATDKphone number in your terminal window during manual connects) to enable MNP10 error correction mode.

If all else fails contact the Regional Co-ordinator by email or by phone on 4954-8912 or email theAdmin Team for help.
