Multiple servers and groups questions

Postby GrouchoBarx » Thu Jul 04, 2019 7:42 pm

I have decided to take advantage of the great 4th of July sale price and add UsenetServer. I currently have Giganews. I have a couple of questions.

1. when I add the new server, do I have to subscribe to groups on that server if I am al;ready subscribed on my primary server?

2. When I download the list of groups, which server(s) does it come from. Is there a way to see just the groups on the newer server?

1 - You don't have to re-add the groups.

2 - The list of groups comes from both servers and will be combined.

I'm fact you might want to set "Usenetserver" to "don't download headers" mode so headers only download from Giganews. Typically the headers are the same on different servers.

Great! That's what I thought, but I wanted to check as this is the first "second server" I am using.
