news.plus.net requesting password

Why am I being prompted for a userid and password when I try to access news.plus.net from my home Plusnet ADSL connection?
My IP address is 80.189.208.xxx which Ripe shows as being registered to Brightview.

Are you on a fixed IP? If not a disconnect/reconnect to get a different IP may get you access.

Re: news.plus.net requesting password

I did do that immediately after my post and I did gain access.  Plusnet staff need to change their news server access rules.
