Forte Agent with Giganews Question?

Postby gumboman » Thu May 26, 2016 4:23 pm

I'm using Forte Agent as my Newsgroup Reader and am wondering if it has all the available newsgroup included. It list 111166 total. Is that the correct # of newsgroups for Giganews?

Thanks
Charlie

Different servers have a different mix of groups. Most have the most common groups. For binary groups there are only about 2000ish active binary groups. The rest are dead for the most part.

Basically, what I'm saying is that the group count doesn't tell you much. I'm seeing 110K groups but I've seem some servers with more. More mostly dead groups.
