 Post subject: Multiple instances of the same server
PostPosted: Mon Aug 08, 2005 1:52 am 
I would like to have multiple instances of the same server, but with different usernames & passwords and preferably with a alias, example...

server: newsgroups.blue.net
alias:blue1

server: newsgroups.blue.net
alias:blue2

Currently Newspro tells me I already have that server so it won't let me add it again.

UE allows it; I don't have NP installed anymore since upgrading to UE. But, you can try to make a new server subset and drag your first instance of the server into it, then try to create another new server entry. I don't know if that will work, but it's worth a shot.

Just curious - why haven't you upgraded to UE yet?

There is an option to check for aliases (3rd column of General tab), turn that off.

And the way to make an alias in Newspro is by using the windows hosts file and your own names for the numeric IP of the server.
