    nope, usenet uses the nntp protocol. But having http proxies only means you cant use ftp/im/mail etc? They dont use http either.

    by the way, take a look in this thread: https://filesharingtalk.com/vb3/newsg...asynews-138383

    No big deal,
    You must use port 80 instead of 119, and fill all requirements (proxy server, outgoing port, username & passsword) in the SOCKS protocol option.

    Or try a program named HTTP-Tunnel (in this case, you don't have to change port 119), it forwards NNTP packets to port 80 on that proxy server (HTTP-Tunnel acts as SOCKS servers so Newsleecher could connect through it)

    The advantage is that you could share a NG account through VPN (Virtual Private Network) or SOCKS servers, or even Proxy servers (with trick).

    GigaNews is the only UseNet provider I tried could connect to port 80 successfully.
