Your newsreader seems to be Google, and I certainly hope you can read
the posts on this newsgroup with it - I would hate to have wasted the
time to reply. If you're asking about some OTHER newsreader program,
of which there are many, there are other places to ask about how to
use it, with Google being a splendid place to start.

Read the documentation for your newsreader program.

Your question has nothing to do with the C programming language, which
is what we discuss here.

You might try asking in news.software.readers -- but if you do, you
should explain to them why your newsreader's documentation didn't
answer your question.

To be very clear, your question is off-topic. You need to ask
someplace else. I suggest news.software.readers.

You said you want to use "the program". Be sure to tell the folks in
news.software.readers (not us) what program you're talking about.

That isn't topical, actually, but here's a freebie: there is no such thing
as "the" NNTP server address. There are loads of NNTP servers, and unless
you're prepared to pay separately for a news service you'll probably end up
using one provided to *you* for free (or rather, included in the price
charged) by your Internet Service Provider. Contact your Internet Service
Provider for connection details. Port 119 is traditional for NNTP but not
mandatory as far as I know.

Thunderbird, from mozilla.org, or the 4.7x series of Netscape.

A: Because it fouls the order in which people normally read text.
Q: Why is top-posting such a bad thing?
A: Top-posting.
Q: What is the most annoying thing on usenet and in e-mail?

It's still of topic to this group.

<OT>
The server address and port number will be given to you by your ISP or
the third party Usenet service provider to whom you've subscribed.

Offline? Forte Agent, or Fortitude Dialog.
