    How can I configure OLXP(6)to access NG's from any dial up ISP?

    If I use the Tiscali or BT dial up ISP's I can't access the NG's I
    subscribe to,this is obviously as Freeserve is my ISP and the NG's are
    accessed via their servers(news.freeserve.com) but is there a way
    around this in the configuration for a generic news server useable by
    all ISP's???

    You could sign up to news.individual.net www.news.individual.net
    It's only a text service there are no binaries. It's fast, free, and I have
    been using it for a few weeks now and have not come up with a problem yet.
