Assuming you are connected to the internet through eircom (not through a
work internet connection or the like), i think it should work without
subscription. I did this just a couple of weeks ago, and used leafnode IIRC
to set up nntp server on my machine, reading its news from news1.eircom.net.
This is the way SuSE 6.3 recommends. Just gave it the address of the server,
used the fetchnews command, and let it work away.
If you are on a non-eircom ip address, then it won't work. Nor will the url
http://support.eircom.net or smtp relay.
(sorry to anyone who feels this is OT (did mention leafnode etc., ;-))
