Reading news offline
I have a dial-up connection to my ISP.
I want to be able to read the usergroups offline. I have downloaded suck, inn and inews and also trn. After I have read their documentation and also the News-HOWTO, I still do not know how to do it.
I can read news with trn and gnus, but only while I am connected to the ISP.
I tried out suck. It made contact with the ISP's NNTP-server and did nothing further but complaining about not finding a history-file. When I use the -H (or is -h) option it stopped complaining but still did nothing.
How can I download the newsgroups I want to subscribe and read them on my own system in my own time? It was a straight forward thing when I used Windows (even without reading a single bit of documentation). After a few hours of reading and experimenting in Linux, I had no success and I do not even know which road to travel.
Thank you for your patience in the past. I trust you will be patient with me this time also.
