Grabit and usenetserver.com port 119 problem
Hi guys

I have been happily using usenetserver and grabit for a while now with no problem. Unfortunatly I have just had to rebiuld my busted hard drive so I am in the process of re installing all of my apps. Re installed grabit, added the server address 'usenetserver.com' and my acc name and password and all i keep getting is a download error saying 'Unable to connect to usenetserver.com.:119'. This is most annoying, can any kind person shed any light on this problem?

Thanks

Toby

I notice you have a period after 'com'. If that is the same in your browser it will fail to connect. I had no trouble when I tried the server without the period.

No period in the browser. Still no joy

This is the message I get when I put in the URL as you have written it, that is : Http://www.usenetserver.com:119

This address is restricted
This address uses a network port which is normally used for purposes other than Web browsing. Firefox has canceled the request for your protection.

If I drop the port number, I get to the homepage, as one would expect.

So why are you specifying 119?
