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.
You can use our service with any newsreader.
However, we suggest to use the Tangysoft Newsreader as it offers the following advantages:
- easy configuration and use
- available for many operating systems (Windows, OS X, Linux)
In order to configure any other newsreader please use the following settings:
- Servername: news.usenext.com
- Port: 119 or 443
- Your username (avi-xxxxxxxxxxx-xxx)
- Your password
You can download the newsreaders that we recommend in your member area.
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.
