Apparently you put your Newsbin key into you news server address.

What news server are you trying to access? We don't supply a news server.

So I did... I guess a web address would be better. Thank you.

You can't just put any old address in that field. I'm guessing you don't have a news server? If not you can't download.

www.usenettools.com has some servers we like on it.
