Re: [leafnode-list] "Getting all newsgroups..." takes 2 hours+

1 did you look in the /var/spool/news/leaf.node to see if it downloaded the
groupinfo file

2 when i run fetch -vvv it hangs when it compleat's it's task and you have
to hit enter to end the task

I have a dial up connection and i pull news every 30 mins for my server
around 10 -30 groups some binary groups and only takes around 10 min's to
pull the news. I cant wait untill the 22 of this month when my 128k ISDN
line get's installed
