Posting on the news.php.net server ?

P: n/a
Hi,

I'm using Free Agent, and I can't seem to connect to the (php.net)
newsserver. I have it as news.php.net, and the error messages are:

Looking up news.php.net
Connecting to news.php.net
Error reported by winsock driver: No response from server (timeout)
(Error 10060): Connecting to news.php.net.

This was using Free Agent as the news client, however when I was using
a browser (Mozilla), and from url http://www.php.net/mailing-lists.php
, I clicked this link news://news.php.net/php.windows , the browsers
'newsgroup' feature appeared to indicate it was reading some messages,
so somehow it connected. The news server I have configured in Free
Agent is simply 'news.php.net.

Thanks,

Peter

Hi,

Oops, the firewall was only allowing port 119 for specific news
servers. Sorry. :)
