What does news.notice say?  Did you configure readers.conf to allow access?

You can connect to the nntp port and try the commands the newsreader
users and see what is going wrong.  e.g.

telnet localhost 119
mode reader

   and see if you get the active line for the group here.  You can also do

list active

   and see if the active file pops out.
