    I have tried everything but can't seem to get it...
    i finally was able to limp thru to the point where i got almost hooked up to
    somethoing called directory.verisign.com. i assume it is the server
    provided by the internet provided here at the coffee shop...(i use their
    wireless connection)
    i got as far as "connecting to server" and after some time it said unable to
    connect to server. it is an unsecured connection so i seems it would
    connect but... help

    Not sure I understand the problem. Since you posted this note I assume you
    subscribed to this newsgroup. Are you having a problem making a connection
    or finding newgroups? A good place to start if looing for Windows newsgroups
    is
    www.microsoft.com/communities/newgroups/default.mspx. When you narrow down
    the language, area, and topic your intersted in you can go to the specific
    newgroup and the option to subscribe will be offered.

  3. The OP's problem was that he needed a news server. He should have
    checked with his ISP.

    Msnews.microsoft.com does not have access to non-Microsoft newsgroups.

    Some ISP's may not provide a news server in which case most newsgroups
    are available through the free Motzarella server http://www.motzarella.org/
