How to access the privatenews newsgroup?
- Are there any "old-style" VSIP partners who have been able to
access the privatenews newsgroup?
From what I've gleaned, everyone should login to the
privatenews server with the user ID "privatenews/VSIPPartner"
literally???? And since when did MS support using a forward-slash
to separate the domain name from the user name?
And what's the password, if "privatenews/VSIPPartner" really is
the user name?
I never received an email as I assumed that my access to the
betanews ms nntp server would carry over to privatenews --
apparently not. Seems like an error to me.
Yes, I posted this to ms.public.vsnet.vsip on July 30, but that
query seems to have terminated that thread.
