Does Hyperconnections offer news groups? Absolutely, our customers
have access to over 60,000 news groups.
What server address do I use for the news server? Hyperconnections’
news server is news.hypercon.net
Do you filter your news service? We
do not actively filter the newsgroups, though upstream news providers
may do so from time to time.
Do I need a username and password to access the News server?
Yes. Use your email address as the username and your email
I have your setup disk, and it installed "Free Agent"
as the news reader, but I cannot access the news groups? Please open the "Preferences" option in Free Agent,
and where it has the ability to allow you to specify your username
and password, please type in your email address as the username
and your email password as the password. Unfortunately, the setup
disk is unable to enter that information automatically.
What news reader do you recommend? If you have problems accessing news, we recommend that you
try using "Forte Free Agent" first before spending too
much time configuring another program. It is one of the best news
reader applications available and very simple to use. You can
find it on our downloads
How much can I download per month? Our Internet access
accounts are not limited to a maximum amount of download
per month however download speeds max out at Dual ISDN speeds
Look in the Newsgroup support area for information on
setting up your news reading program.
