Excuse my naivety, new to the whole newsgroup thing. I am not accessing a Comcast newsgroup - Just trying to find a server to access Microsoft news groups. It is my understanding that the ISP has to provide that server. Like an SMTP server for outlook.
Or are you saying Comcast doesn't provide the server anymore?
There certainly ARE free newsgroup services. The two most popular are eternal-september.org (I switched to them when Comcast stopped their service) and aioe.org. They don't provide binary newsgroups, but other than that they're perfectly fine.
Did you still need newsgroup access by any chance? Drop me a line as I may be able to help.
can anyone tell me what Comcast's NNTP server name is? Needed for newsgroup access.
