Can't subscribe to newsgroup - thunderbird

That should be easy.

I try to add comp.os.linux.misc newsgroup in Thunderbird account, but cant subscribe. It says "Failed to connect to server comp.os.linux.misc". I know I make mistake on writing the adress, but don't know how to write it. I found on google the name of the group, but no server.

I try also, but can't subscribe too.

Can someone help?

Try using for the new server setting. Then you can choose "comp.os.linux.misc" to subscribe to.

You may need to hunt for an open new server somewhere near you, however.

Hope this helps some.

Yes, it works. I will try to find local servers later. Thank you!
