Plusnets newgroup feed is text only and has been for many years.
For binary access you will need to subscribe to a outside newsfeed supplier.

Re: alt.binaries???

as Peter says.
You say all binaries, do you mean you cannot get ANY or just that specific group?

They don't exist in the newsgroup list and thus are not selectable.

Have a look at http://www.newsservers.net/index.php. I have no idea how uptodate it is.

I wouldn't rate that site - it still lists beta.usenet.plus.net (212.159.2.86) and under software it only lists two, one of which is Outlook Express!
