read the logs in /var/log/news - innd is quite verbose (excessive unless
you edit /etc/syslog.conf to ignore news.notice) in it's logging. 

You'll want to look at /var/log/news.err or /var/log/news/news.crit. 
These log files will tell you what you're doing wrong.

since you haven't provide any details, i'll have to use my amazing psychic
powers and read your mind.......

.........aha! that's it! you haven't read the documentation! 

look in /usr/doc/inn.  in fact, look under all subdirectories of /usr/doc
- most of the things you would want to know about your system are
documented in there.   read the man pages too.

(i feel drained now.  i dont think i'll be able to repeat that stupendous
psychic feat for weeks)

'tin' is for accessing news in the local news spool. 'tin -r' is for
using a remote nntp server.

running 'rtin' is equivalent to 'tin -r', so just run rtin.

other than that, read the man pages and the docs under /usr/doc/tin - there
may (or may not) be an option for your ~/.tinrc which does what you want.
