@arcadeshopper Are you using an up-stream feed?

yes it's read/write  

 

also if there's a usenet group someone is interested in I can add it..  I don't have unlimited space on that drive but can carry what is interesting

I just connected to it with Thunderbird and news.Eternal-September.org

Didn't know it existed before now.

When users were still able to call into my BBS, I had a connection/feed to comp.sys.ti as well through the fidonet/retronet network.  I think Chris has it partially implemented on his BBS last I checked, but only with older content as he copied my content, but did not establish the up/down link.

I need to poke technically.  Are you using INN or another daemon?  What is your uplink; free or paid?

I'm using the NNTP client in the software I run, worldgroup 3.xx 

Another BBS is hosting BBS's free at this point

Oh, I thought you were doing something fancy :P  I ask because I have considered running a local nntp node using INN.  Apparently the nntp daemon I have in Solaris is not up to the task (does not support secure connections.)  As well, since Sprint/Embarq/CenturyLink have long since decommissioned their news servers, I would have to find another up-stream for money.  That is pretty cool you BBS guys are working together like this.

I'm getting an NNTP error "Access denied - you are not my news server" when I try to connect via Thunderbird.

Connecting to me?   I am not currently offering nttp other than through the BBS message interface.

So where is the access to the user group on the BBS? I checked the Internet Services section and it's not there...

I dunno if my ISP offers NNTP or not... I should check.  I remember once upon a time it was a standard feature of ISPs.. but that was aeons ago.

Netscape navigator! Oh--- How quaint!

The server resolves but does not respond.  I am surprised it resolves at all.  They took it all down years ago.
