gnus questions


Hi there
I'm having trouble getting connected to my isp's news server.
I have a gnus.el file in my home directory.This is the contents of that file:
Code:
(setq gnus-select-method '(nntp "news.btinternet.com"))
I've also tried the longer version with the port number included.
Thankx for any help
regards methodtwo
