    I have what I might call a unique problem. I'm getting Connection Refused errors when I attempt to download files via usenet-news.net on both Unison and iGrabNews.

    What I'm hoping is that a fellow mac user can duplicate this, so I know it's not something wrong with my setup. usenet-news.net works beautifully on my windows machine with no problems, so I know this is a unison and igrabnews issue. I get the Connection Refused errors sometimes, other times I am able to get the file after retrying several times. the only thing I can think of why i'm having this problem is because there is a '@' in the username. If anyone can help to diagnose or replicate, I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks in advance. :confused:

    Are you using the same port on both your windows and mac?

    Yes Port 119 on both windows and mac. even tried all three of their servers. the same thing. Signed up for giganews trail just to see, and that worked perfectly.
