From http://searchnetworking.techtarget.com/sDefinition/0,,sid7_gci212663,00.html (for those of the reader that - like me - didn't know what NNTP is):
NNTP (Network News Transfer Protocol) is the predominant protocol used by computer clients and servers for managing the notes posted on Usenet newsgroups. NNTP replaced the original Usenet protocol, UNIX-to-UNIX Copy Protocol (UUCP) some time ago. NNTP servers manage the global network of collected Usenet newsgroups and include the server at your Internet access provider. An NNTP client is included as part of a Netscape, Internet Explorer, Opera, or other Web browser or you may use a separate client program called a newsreader.
The rather simple answer, I think, is that this isn't a Usenet newsgroup. This is just a website. And websites are viewed in browsers, not in email or newsgroup clients.
I am failing to find a way to access forums.cnet.com via NNTP.
- Is NNTP protocol supported ?
- Is there something else I can do to get cnet on my outlook express (some converter, plugin, or so ??)
