Set the debug flag and look into logfile. You can set logging to a
verbose level where most (if not all) traffic from and to the server is

If I try to connect to news.internode.on.net, I receive some 502 access
denied. I guess, thats some provider-only server, and I'm not using the
right provider. One has no possibility to send some user or password.

So, what is your IP when getting 502, and what is your IP when getting
200? (Sometimes providers don't allow access to their server from all of
the IP space due to some carelessness or whatever.)
