Currently there are some routing problems to the newsserver of Albasani.net. I can’t reach the newsserver from the system where I’m reading news, but through another system ($GATEWAY) which is located at another ISP without any problems. Solution?
ssh -L 9999:news.albasani.net:119 $GATEWAY NNTPSERVER=localhost:9999 slrn -f $NEWSRC
Simple. No further setup changes. Just. Works.
