Very poor logic.
I can make this computer ping-able, and the one across the room NOT
ping-able. Or, in about 1.5 minutes, I could make them just the opposite.
It's changeable on each machine, and an NNTP server is no different.
Your previous NNTP server has no bearing on your current one.
Poor logic maybe, true... yes. My original NNTP server is now up and
running (I had to tell them it was down) and it is pingable. I knew
that I had been able to ping it in the past, hence my statement.
Aren't pings just UDP requests that can be turned off via a firewall?
How many friggin names are you going to post from?
A ping is not the same as a UDP request, it's something called an ICMP
packet. Yes, they can be turned off (filtered) at a firewall, hence my
statement about each NNTP server not affecting another. Perhaps this one
is filtered, and that one is not...
