Follow-Ups set to: grc.test


In order to better control spam posts, Steve requires that all
posters to use a "CECIL-ID" logon and passphrase.
If you only wish to read posts ("lurk"), and not reply or send
your own posts, then no action is needed on your part.

Instructions for creating your own unique CECIL-ID can be found at:

Steve has added ports 110, 563, and 11911 as alternate
connection ports for the news server. These ports can be
used if your Internet access point blocks news server
access via the default port 119. Note that port 563 is
NOT SSL enabled on the news server.
