Pan - using other news providers

Post by terryc » Tue Jan 27, 2009 10:25 am

In the last upgrade (Debian etch) of Pan, to 0.119, it has lost the capacity to switch news servers. I can enter multiple servers, but not select any but the first.

Bit of a problem atm as reader.news.telstra.net has stopped respoding and nntp.aioe.org seems to now be down permanently.

I use 0.129 and I can switch between the US and French servers of the same provider. They are set up as independent servers in the drop down. I have another entry as well, for using another port.

There hasn't been much development for a while, as far as I know. Release notes at http://pan.rebelbase.com/
