What is Usenet?

Usenet is a world-wide distributed discussion system. It consists of a set of "newsgroups" with names that are classified hierarchically by subject. "Articles" or "messages" are "posted" to these newsgroups by people on computers with the appropriate software -- these articles are then broadcast to other interconnected computer systems via a wide variety of networks.

How to get started?

To start enjoying this wonderful tool we call the Usenet you need a two things: a news client and a news server. Most people already have a news client installed on their computer and they just don't know it. Netscape and Internet Explorer both have a built in news client, but if you don't like the browser based clients have a look at our NNTP client page. Next you need a news server to read news from. That's not hard either, just create yourself an account on our server, nntp.teranews.com.

You need to configure your news client to use your new Tera News account. Look for the 'news server' settings or preference panel. You will need to enter the server name, user name, and password. The server name is news.teranews.com and you picked your own user name and password during the account creation process. You may also have to select an option that says "My server requires a username and password".  Save and exit the configuration panel and your news client should download a group list. It may take several minutes to download the group list as there are several thousand newsgroups available. Once it has completed you will be able to read articles. download files, and even post your own articles for others to read.
