Welcome! You've found the discussion group area on LUGNET, a place to meet other LEGO® fans and talk about all sorts of LEGO® topics.
Setting up a newsreader
The discussion groups here are handled by an NNTP server, meaning that you can access them with your favorite newsreader just as you would access your favorite USENET newsgroups such as rec.toys.lego. The NNTP settings for this server are:
Configuration is straightforward with most newsreaders. If you run into problems, you may need to get special permission from your system administrator if you are behind a firewall, or you may need to switch to a newsreader which supports multiple NNTP servers. You might also want to try port 8080 if you are unable to access using port 1119.
Whether you access the groups by mail, the Web, or a real newsreader, everyone sees the same messages because there is a common core.
By the way, if you are ever curious about which groups are the most active, check out the useful Traffic Report page, which is updated automatically every 5 minutes.
See you inside!
