Thread: NNTP changes?

  1. #1

    Default NNTP changes?

    For many days now I have been unable to access the forums via NNTP.
    I am receiving errors timeout on server nntp.novell.com. Did I miss something?
    Has this server been retired or decomissioned?

    Thanks.

    There were some issues with the NNTP servers. Those using NNTP for novell
    or netiq are recommended to use the following IP address for now:

    130.57.2.16

    The easiest way to do this may be to modify your /etc/hosts (or
    equivalent) file as I did:

    130.57.2.16 nntp.novell.com nntp.netiq.com

    Didn't work. Have there been changes to the credentials required or transport?

    If I put in my credentials (same as I use for this site) into Knode, all I get is access denied.

    I routinely connect to both nntp.opensuse.org and nntp.novell.com without problems.

    You don't use your credentials for NNTP. The access is unauthenticated.
