Usenet Server Address?

Postby gellis4290 » Sun Mar 18, 2018 5:03 pm

I am trying to configure Newsbin 6.8 for the first time. It is asking me for a server address. I am using server
news.newshosting.com. what is it looking for? I've searched Newshosting app but can only find a reference to ports used.

That's the address. As for the port, the defaults should work for you so you don't have to set anything. You really just need the address, username and password and whether you want to use SSL or not. The rest is extra.
