Problem with newsreader in BBE 4.01

Hi

I have a strange problem. I have changed IPS, and now I cannot send
news. I can log in to 3 different news servers and download groups and
read the news, but I cannot send (Post request refused). It's a dialup
connection (ISDN).

If I use another IPS (more expensive, so I don't want to use it too
much) there is no problems. I can recieve and send news (from all news
servers). Anyone have an idea about what's going on?

Thomas

Hi!

This is most likely only due to your ISP:
E.g. when I'm in the internet using a T-Online dial-up, I can read the
news on the newsserver in the Technical University of Berlin (TUB),
but I can't write anything there. But I do have full access to the
newsserver at T-Online.
When I'm using a dial-up via the TUB, I do have full access to the
TUB's newsserver, but only read access to the T-Online-newsserver...

I guess that your problem is similar - most likely your more expensive
ISP has signed a cooperation contract with the newsserver-providers
and hence doesn't get blocked.
Or your cheaper ISP is on a "black-list" due to some spammers :-(
