How to post here direct from news reader

Postby oakeny » Sat Mar 01, 2014 11:01 pm

I use the 40tude dialog news reader and read the Terabyte forum posts there.

However, if I attempt to submit a post or reply to another user's post from my news reader, the forum server appears to reject the message and my attempt terminates with an error message to the effect that the server has closed the connection abruptly.

I looked through the FAQ for forums on the Terabyte web site, but didn't find any reference to this.

If it is possible to post without going via the web site, is there some setting(s) that I need to adjust in my newsreader to get access?
At present my news reader is set to access at host: terabyteunlimited.com
on port 1199, and my username and password are in the appropriate boxes.

Presumably these settings are correct since I can access the messages on the site, but they don't allow me to post.

Cheers,

Ensure replies are normal text and that you don't have some special option
or characters it would try to post..
