Free Newsgroup Servers - Detailed Listing!

Postby contentryder » Thu Jul 19, 2007 10:17 pm

I am trying to look for more free usenet servers since some of the ones I have aren't working anymore. I have a 12mb Cox connection for 30 bucks and seeing it rise to 1.7mb/s

(Just let it sit. They will activate.)

Anyone care to list some?

These are the ones that I have:
server address - connections - user/pw

Cox-
Retention now at 30-60 days! 99% completion! 60kb/s x8
news.east.cox.net - 4 - no user/pw
news.west.cox.net - 4 - no user/pw

Freenet- German signup at https://pos.freenet.de/freenetMailBasic/
Retention is only 3 days! Average 30kb/s x16
news.freenet.de - 2 - user/pw used from signing up
newsread0.freenet.de - 2 - user/pw from signing up
newsread1.freenet.de - 2 - user/pw from signing up
newsread2.freenet.de - 2 - user/pw from signing up
newsread3.freenet.de - 2 - user/pw from signing up
newsread4.freenet.de - 2 - user/pw from signing up
newsread5.freenet.de - 2 - user/pw from signing up
newsread6.freenet.de - 2 - user/pw from signing up

varies from 30kb/s to maxing out
freebin.readnews.com - 8 - any user/pw (guest/guest)
freebin-auth.readnews.com - 8 - any user/pw (guest/guest)

news.easynews.nl - 8 - beta@easynews.nl/beta

YottaNews - http://www.yottanews.com/create.html
free.yottanews.com - 1 - signup for user/pw

slow
biggulp.readfreenews.net - 1 - no user/pw

Please list yours by server address, connections, username/password. If you don't want to share with others, PM me?

Thanks!

People who know of free ones don't want to spread the word. Too many people using them will lead to the servers going down. Don't you realize that? :)

Some of these are long dead, and for others you have listed incorrect connection counts. Are you one of those who has his client blindly attempting to connect to free servers that have been dead for months, or continuously trying to get more connections than are allowed? If you want to do this you should be using a client that gives you detailed connection response information; if you don't it's asking for trouble.

I see this as a fishing expedition on your part. You offer a lot of out-of-date information hoping that people will give you more servers. How did this get to be a sticky?

if you are going to give us a list of free servers please research and test them maybe even from different computers to insure there is no trick connections.

trick connections are where it may only work from your own computer because of a cookie stored or something.

There are some which give premium servers a run for their money :shock: . One test one I was using last month allowed me to complete 104 day old files (I could get upto about 114 but there was incompletes) and max out an 8Mb connection with just 4 simul connections, but its stopped working now :(

I've used freebin and got files upto around 60 days old, though it varies from group to group

To the OP that list looks similar to one posted in a thread in the free.newsservers newsgroup. Its not hard finding the widely known servers that everyone hammers, the challenge is the ones not mentioned on most forums etc and need a bit more effort

Looks like freenet.de isn't working anymore. I've heard they're going to drop their Usenet support. Now everyone will pile into freebin, and that'll have to be slowed down to their previous slow speed. Threads like this are pure evil. :lol: :pirate: :nopity:

If you are looking for uncensored text + binary groups you can try http://grepler.com which is web based and completely free.
UUEncoded binaries are supported but yEnc is not. So you can still access pictures and some other files. You can post small files (10MB) too though multipart rar files is not possible.

Good for simple sharing and discussion boards replacement without moderation hassle. a bit buggy maybe since you cant open multiple groups and post at the same time. It chooses only the group you were recently at and clicking Post Topic. Files are posted in UUencoded format.

The interface could be improved, it has been under heavy development for over one year. suggestions ?

thank you :toast:
Free newsgroups access
anon, lossless, free, euro uncensored image hosting is here. gif avatars too can be hotlinked.
