Thread: Help! Really stuck and confused

  1. #1
    Hi I have registered on usenet and paid up for an account.

    I have downloaded both grabit and x news, and whenever i try to search i get a 502 authentification failed message.

    This is really doing my head in now.

    I think the problem may be that I am on AOL????

    Any help would be fantasttic

    Am i correct in thinking that seeing as I am on AOL i have to use a different news server such as

    https://secure.giganews.com/signup/

    ????

    That is most definately a password/username issue. Normally a pass issue.

    You sometimes get these errors when the usenet provider is having issues with their servers too.
