Just like a browser (Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, etc.) is needed in order to access the Internet, the Usenet requires a so called newsreader. The newsreader allows you to find specific contents on the Usenet and to take part in discussions.
Yes, we do suggest the use of the Tangysoft Newsreader that is available for free for all the common operating systems (Windows, OS X, Linux). In addition there is a variety of newsreaders available for all existing operating systems. Most of these newsreaders are free and can be used for downloading with UseNeXT.
If you want to install the newsreader on a Mac, you might encounter a small issue.
Here are instructions for avoiding this issue:
When trying to install the Mac version of the newsreader, if you see the message "Programme XYZ can´t be opened because it is from an unidentified developer", please proceed as follows:
First confirm this message by clicking on “OK”
Right-click on the file to be installed (alternative: hold down the [ctrl] key and left-click on the file)
Then click “Open”
The message “Programme XYZ is from an unidentified developer. Are you sure you want to open it?” appears
