Test Server

This window is opened from the “Test News Server” command on the “Help” menu.

If you are having trouble connecting to your Usenet “news” server, click the “Connect” button on this window. You will see ezNZB’s dialogue with the server. You might see an error message that gives you a clue as to what the problem is. If not, you can copy-and-paste the dialogue into the reply box below, and we will take a look at it.

    I’m on Snow Leopard using ezNZB, verified my settings with teranew.com, turned off my firewall, still can’t connect. This is the only message get:

    –>Connecting to news.teranews.com with SSL v1…

    and that’s all it does, it never connects.

    Any insight would be helpful!

    Have you tried the other SSL settings? Have you tried to connect with SSL turned off?
