As far as I know BSNL doesn't offer any news server. :eek:Nor are the BSNL guys aware of these things. Many simply doesn't have any concept of ADSL stuff... :(

i doubt their is any ISP in india which anylonger has their own nntp servers. there was this free one i used. but it has gone paid too. the only decent way to access newsgroups seems to be google groups... but i had believe someone would know about any remaining nntp servers around here.

But VSNL has it's own news server for years & I have used it with outlook express & other nntp client in the past.

when was the last time u used vsnl servers? i think they restricted usage for only dialup users and they have mostly likely closed them now. can anyone confirm this?
