It sounds like there is no NNTP server at that address, at least not on port 119.

But i can use the address thru OE. i can read messages thru OE.
Can you help me to test the address? or can you give me a nntp server to use?
thanks for your help.

Is PHP running on the same machine as the one you are trying to connect from? Can you try to connect to the server using fsockopen() and see if that work.

i use the following code to test on my server:
<?php
$fp = fsockopen("news.grc.com", 119, $errno, $errstr);
if (!$fp) {
   echo "ERROR: $errno - $errstr<br />\n";
} else {
   fwrite($fp, "\n");
   echo fread($fp, 26);
   fclose($fp);
}
?> 


it's report as:
ERROR: 110 - Connection timed out

i try to add news:// before the url, it's said, Error: 0 - Success.

Please help me to fix it?
do i need do some setting on my server to get it run?

IT seems like your server is being blocked from accessing that address via a firewall. Can you try running your test script on another machine?
