Has Claro (formerly Codetel*) stopped providing a server for usenet newsgroups?

I spoke to their technical support yesterday and the CSR didn't know what I was talking about.

If I ping news.claro.net.do it returns "could not find host".

If I ping news.codetel.net.do the ping kicks to news.isp.giganews.com successfully. When I configure my news reader and try to access groups I need it returns "error 482 access denied".




*They can change their name all they want but they will always be jodetel.:tired:

I'm surprised to hear that ISP's still offer this! In the states, the ISP's stopped offering newsgroup access yearssssss ago.
