To Free Usenet Tutorials!   


www.OZusenet.info (www.OZusenet.com) is a totally free Australian website offering my personally written tutorials on "How to use USENET" since 2007.

Included in the tutorials are settings for the popular USA Usenet providers Newshosting, UsenetServer, & Usenet-News. As well as local Australian ISP's Adam Internet, Escapenet, and Internode.

I understand starting out with Usenet can be a little daunting at first.

Hopefully, with my step-by-step tutorials I might have just made the whole Usenet process a little bit easier for you?


Good Luck!... and Happy Usenet'ing :-)
