Cannot connect to usenet

Hi,
I dont seem to be able to connect to either usenet.plus.net or the beta service...
Im connecting from my WORK connection and NOT the plus line, does it limit access only to this?

i get the error
502 Permission Denied - You are unable to access www.plus.net USENET service (Typhoon v1.2.3)

help!
cheers

Indeed. This server is setup so that it can only be accessed from a PlusNet provided IP address.

Otherwise the whole world would be using is as a free server to download binaries. Somthing thich the PlusNet customer base do not want, as it degrades the service.

cant they open it up to all the net. Provide access only through our plus usernames and password and restrict it to 1 or 2 connections?
