VNEWS is available via anonymous ftp from esa.lanl.gov in [.vnews]. It's a
pretty decent reader.

There are a couple of nntp newsreaders available from anon ftp servers.

ANUNEWS available at narnia.memst.edu and others
FNEWS                zephyr.grace.cri.nz
NEWSRDR              ftp.spc.edu and others
VMS NEWS             wuarchive.wustl.edu, ftp.uu.net, e.g.
VNEWS                dftsrv.gsfc.nasa.gov

and a couple more.
But I think this list is enough for a first test.
I recommend NEWSRDR or ANUNEWS. I got both running and I like both .

see ya,
Andreasw

I use NEWSRDR.  Many people like VNEWS.

News Software for VMS
---------------------

ANU-News  - Not just a news reader, but a full-blown news system for VMS,
            including both an NNTP client and server.  Available by anonymous
            FTP from kuhub.cc.ukans.edu.  VMS style user interface.  For more
            information, see newsgroup news.software.anu-news, or the mailing
            list ANU-NEWS at VM1.NoDak.EDU for more information. (AXP and VAX)

NEWSRDR   - A news reader (NNTP client).  Supports threading using the
            References: header (or via Subject: header, whichever you
            prefer).  Requires access to a system running an NNTP server.
            Available by anonymous FTP from public.tgv.com in directory
            [.MADISON.NEWSRDR], and from ftp.spc.edu (file name
            [.MACRO32.SAVESETS]NEWSRDR.ZIP).  It is also available


            with the text "HELP" in the message body for more

            more information.  (AXP and VAX)

VNEWS     - Another NNTP client.  Available by anonymous FTP from arizona.edu
            in directory [SOFTWARE.VMS.VNEWS].  UNIX style user interface.

            (AXP and VAX)

VMS NEWS  - Yet another NNTP client.  Available by anonymous FTP from
            ftp.rz.uni-ulm.de, directory /pub/VMS/communications, and on
            ftp.spc.edu, directory [.ucx].  Contact Bernd Onasch


            Apparently a threaded newsreader (follows References: lines).
            (VAX only (?))

DXRN/MXRN - DECwindows and Motif implementations of xrn, an X Windows based
            NNTP client.  Available by anonymous FTP from decuac.dec.com,
            file /pub/DEC/dxrn.share.  Contact Rick Murphy

BULLETIN  - Includes a USENET news reading mode.  Send mail to

            body for details on what BULLETIN is and how to get it.

FNEWS     - Basically a mixture of NEWSRDR and ANU-NEWS, providing a
            somewhat different full-screen interface and quick response to
            all 1800 groups.  It can be found in the pub/fnews/vms directory

            information.  (VAX only (?))

TIN       - There's a TIN port available from hobbes.cc.duq.edu in the
            [ANONYMOUS.TIN] directory, and also on tango.cchs.su.edu.au in
            [FTP.VMS.TIN].  (VAX only (?))

TNR       - TPU-NewsReader (TNR) is a TPU-based Usenet News reader system.
            Requires a news server that supports the XHDR command.  Supports
            taglines, signatures, and e-mail (Pony Express, but can be
            changed), and subject-line-based threads.  Anonymous FTP to
            ecovax.eco.twg.com in the [anonymous.pub] directory.  (VAX and
            AXP V6.1)

Many of these programs are also available from DECUS, either from the DECUS
Library or on recent VAX SIG tapes.


 
 
 

1. VMS News Readers, NNTP, and Multinet

I have a MicroVAX 3100 running VMS 5.3, Multinet V3.2D.  We have a SLIP
connection to a local Internet provider, who maintains their own
Usenet News files/directories.

Just using a VMS newsreader 'client' and NNTP, should accessing the news
files on the provider's system be a workable approach?  (albeit slow)

Thanks!
