Hi, I have AOL, and am able to access newsgroups through AOL but I'm having trouble downloading binary files, especially those in multiple parts. I found a program Binary Boy that seems promising but I need the server address and port to set it up and I don't know what to use. Is there a way to find out or perhaps a better way to deal with these encoded files?

Thanks

Adam

FWIW, Forte Agent it the standard by which other newsreaders are measured, I've been using it for years.

You can always go to keyword "newsgroups" and use aol to retrieve the files, then decode them later with a yenc utility. You don't need a new reader.
