How to access news://

I'm running Redhat 6.0 on a PC with
no innd.  I wanted to access some
private newsgroups ... the vendor said:

"All questions should be directed to the beta newsgroups at

 These newsgroups are:

But when I put the url "news://"
in my browser (Netscape 4.7),
nothing happens.  How can I get
this working?

I realize that weblogic's beta is over,
but still I'm curious how to read
a company's local news groups.

Many thanks!

I tried this too and it looks more like a netscape problem than a linux problem since it don't work on a MAC too . If I use explorer it works. Why don't you open the netscape messenger window and add this address as news server. This should work.

weblogic.beta.denali.clustering newsgroup on this server.
