xnews and a proxy server

Postby milkchug2000 » Thu Mar 12, 2009 9:31 am

How does one set up Xnews to use a proxy server? For example, TOR. The server in xnews needs to be localhost and port 8118, but where would it know the name of the actual newsgroup server?

Thanks

you shouldn't use TOR to download from usenet.
