Greensburg PBX now offers a
public news (nntp) server for our customers. We
are being supplied with a constant news feed from
MCI for over TWENTY THOUSAND different news
groups. This page will give you the information
needed to connect to our server.
You must first acquire
software. We recommend and support
Microsoft Internet News. You probably
already have the software on your system
but it might require configuring. If you
prefer to use another news client feel
free, but we can not possibly support all
the software on the market.
To setup the software
follow the on-screen instructions. It
will ask for your name, e-mail address,
and the location of the news server. Our
news server is located at news.gpbx.net (makes sense).
When you first start the
news program it will take a little while
for your computer to download the list of
20,000+ newsgroups. Once this is done
click on the Newsgroups button.
Find a news group you want to view and
click Go To. HINT: You can type in
a word that your looking for (e.g.
nascar) and the program will find all the
news groups containing that word. You can
also subscribe the the news group which
will make it easier to get to the next
