Default News server help?

sponsored links

 
I used www.easynews.com news server for a couple of days for a trial and found it quite easy, now the trial has ended i have decided to use ntl news server and xnews as my program.

I am stuck tho as it seems harder...

1. How do i search all the pages in a newsgroup?(as in easy news, when i went to a newsgroup their was about 30pages of different files ect)

2. how do i search thru pages(easynews had a search funtion)

3. how do i select my defualt download folder?

4. How do i download mutliple files?

5. If i want to download a rar file do i just highlight, go to transfer and click on download? or go to decode or something?

Thanks 4 the help provided.

It's most likely that your ISP's news server is really bad (most ISP news servers are). They don't really have high retention rates and most binaries files are incomplete. That's the reason why you can't see any files, they're incomplete.
