For one, you should be using readers.conf instead of nnrp.access.  But
this does not seem to be the problem since you can post locally.

So, what does your nntpsend.ctl look like?  And you are using innxmit,

And are you sure that the upstream host actually accepts your postings?
Check nntpsend.log.

Do you have any anti-spam filters installed on your local machine?  If so,
it may be dropping your postings.  Check news.log.
