Free Usenet Newsservers with alt.binaries

From Cship
Jump to: navigation, search

Sometimes it is not possible to pay for a Usenet access. If you just want to access a binary information on Newsgroups, you can try one of these free servers. They are not very fast, don't carry all groups, have a low retention and won't last for long, but its worth a try.

A recommended free Usenet client is SABnzbd. In the configuration enter 2 or more different free accounts to increase overall speed, reliability and retention.
