|What is it?|
news.9110.net is a stand-alone newsserver offering a set of newsgroups
related to the 9Ks (as everywhere on this site, it's not only for the
9110 but generally for the whole series of communicators). Everybody
can read and post to these groups without prior application, so just set
up your newsreader and join the discussions.
|Which groups are set up|
These groups are currently configured on the server. They are mainly my
suggestion for an initial group-set, if you think there's a group
missing just post it to 9k.admin and we'll discuss it, already happened
a few times so far so don't be afraid :)|

|How to reach the server|
The newsservers hostname is news.9110.net and almost more important,
the port is 9110. This is a non-standard port for newsservers and
was chosen so the server isn't found by silly scanner-bots which are
searching the net for open servers.|
Usually it should be enough to enter this information into your favourite
newsreader, for example Netscape Communicator (it's generally not considered
to be a good newsreader, but it should be enough for a local server like
this one). Sometimes you don't have an exta field for the port, try
to use news.9110.net:9110 as hostname in these cases.
If you have any problems reaching the server - just let me know by mail
