Can I connect to a host that requires Port 1198 ?

Postby 222fbj » Mon Oct 15, 2007 1:26 am

I'm trying to view a newsgroup on
They say.... Simply connect your favorite newsreader to port 1198 at then subscribe to public.announce and any other groups that interest you.

How can I do this in Greatnews? - I dont see a 'Port' option in Feed properties... or am I missing something?

They provide instructions for using Outlook Express...

There's a proxy server option for the entire program, but nothing at present, for individual feeds .....

You can use port# in url directly. eg:
