From reading about nget, it seems like a very cool
utility and I'm anxious to give it a try. I've
configured my .ngetrc file with the server, user name,
and password. When I try to retreive the list of
groups, I can connect, authenticate, and retreive a
partial list of groups. I then receive a fatal error "
501 no such list available". Am I doing something
wrong or could the giganews server be doing something
Please see the session below:
