When Cammel powerpost is started we go to Options. And choose Program settings. Enter the details of your news server here. This information is often contained in the welcome email you received from your Payserver. Beware! There are a lot of free news servers that don’t support uploading. So you often really need a Payserver for this.

You may need to enable uploading on your Usenet provider’s website. This is the case with Eweka, for example.

It is wise not to set the Simultaneous connections higher than 2. This increases the chance that something corrupt will arrive on the news server. And it often is useless. Because uploading is often slower than downloading. This is because of your upload limit. Often much lower than your download limit from your internet provider.
