I'm not sure why but, after subscribing to any newsgroup and pressing "go to", I get this message, "480 Authentication Required

Configuration:
Account: newsgroups.bellsouth.net
Server: 127.0.0.1
User name: #news.atl.bellsouth.net
Protocol: NNTP
Port: 119
Secure(SSL): 0
Error Number: 480
Code: 800ccca4
I use Windows 98 B, and internet explorer 6 with outlook express. Any info about fixing this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks. RaymanI

Hi raymanI
Configuration:
Account: newsgroups.bellsouth.net
Server: 127.0.0.1
User name: #news.atl.bellsouth.net
Protocol: NNTP
Port: 119
Secure(SSL): 0
Error Number: 480

Try changing the settings to this:

Configuration:
Account: newsgroups.bellsouth.net
Server: news.atl.bellsouth.net
Check mark: <This server requires me to log on>
User name: <Your User Name with your ISP>
Password: <Your Password for your ISP>
Protocol: NNTP
Port: 119

Let us know if that works or not.
