Read over this on the portal to get the first idea and taste.

The PlusNet Usenet service is below par at the moment on Binary groups.

You best bet is to get a good newsreader like Agent from

It makes posting and reading a breeze

Thanks for the replies. I just installed NewsRover (it got a pretty decent reception on download.com so I thought I'd give it a try).

Now I just need to figure out a good server...

You need to use +net server. There are free servers out there but they are very intermitant(being Free). Most other isps wont let you connect except from their ips.

Plus net has a lot of groups anyway about 33,000 which is more than enought

OK, I see. I couldn't find PlusNet in the list of available servers within the NewsRover client though, so how do I connect to it? Sorry for my total n00b questions, btw.

Are you sure you're not confusing groups with servers? You should select the server (usenet.plus.net) somewhere in the Options menu.

Thanks anyway.
