MT-Newswatcher and Earthlink - Mac Networking

Is there a problem with using Newswatcher with Earthlink's newsservers? It appears that sometimes the software will not authenticate and sometimes it does. Likewise, most of the time posts do not go through, except to Earthlink's own groups. So this is actually a test, too. --Larry -- Dr. Larry Bickford, O.D.

    I am not an Earthlink customer but had a similar problem with user
    authentication with my prior ISP and MTNW.

    In my case it was clearly a problem on the provider's end.

    Check your posting headers to see if you are actually posting news
    through Earthlink or through a system aliased to them. If Earthlink
    aliases news from another supplier as was my case, there may be an
    issue with thenumber of users allowed at one time, menaing you['d have
    to wait for someone to log off news or stop activity long enough for a
    free slot to open up.

    Posting that only shows up on the local server and does not propagate
    elsewhere is a news server problem for sure.

    Complain. You're paying for it.

    And sometimes it will connect in contexts where authorization is based
    on IP address and sometimes it won't.

    It's a cross-provider problem for me...I just have gotten used to the
    occasional need to hit command-Y.

    In those provider combinations where I can watch the RADIUS log while
    connecting, it turns out that the initial attempt to authenticate by
    password succeeds and MT-Newswatcher nonetheless complains that it
    doesn't.
