I have tried to download several files today. I keep getting files that ask me for a password. I am not very experienced with Newsgroups, I have been using for about 2 months, that's it, but have not seen this problem as frequently as I have today. I am using giganews, pan newsreader, all on ubuntu linux. My question is, am I doing something wrong? I can't figure out why all the sudden everything I try to download wants a password.
