The hamster as such

An industrious rodent, which collects News. A simple, but reliable friend of the species homo newsgroupia extensis. One knows animals of this kind also under the name ' local news server ' .
There are also under Windows many further programs of this type, but those are after my experiences either too extensively, too susceptibly, too much in the system merged or simply inadequately expensive.

Although Juergen Haible calls the program still beta, it runs after my experiences very stably and is constantly developed further. At present the program is Freeware.

A further Installationsanstallationsanleitung adapted to OE user is with Michael Gebert .

News hamster can:

News hamster cannot:
Risks and side effects:
The hamster makes addicted. The hamster can lead to the fact that humans try unrestrainedly different newsreader out. The hamster lets doubt once more whether Microsoft would like to compile really good solutions for News.
The hamster shows impressively that good programs can be created also by ' loners '.

Necessary adjustments for OE5

Around OE5 with the hamster to connect fogende adjustments are necessary:
New new discount payment create:

Extras| Konten| Again
Under general give a name to the future server (e.g. hamsters).
Under the register card servers for the server name simply ' local host ' enter (without quotes).
All other adjustments can remain with the factory-installed default values.
War's for the account.
In the future News of this, your quite private server is in the OE in the department.

Adjustments in the Internet options under IE5 (or system control):

If humans want to connect themselves now with this server, OE normally maekelt with error messages. Thus off into the Internet options and there under

Connections [ a connection do not select ] mark.

Now it should be possible to achieve the newsgroup loaded with the hamster. Transfer of the newsgroup list, subscribing newsgroup etc. functions exactly the same as with every other server.

Consider please: If a normal connection to the network is to be repaired over OE5 or IE5, please to reset.
This can be simplified over a Verknuefung of the Internet options in the task border.


Signature correction and more of Juergen send

Owing to the cleared up post office output file it offers itself to complete the necessary corrections here. The advantage consists of the fact that it is not necessary to compress beforehand the OE Ausgangsfolder.
