I can telnet to the newsserver but I only get:

200 sunbox.klingler.ch InterNetNews NNRP server INN 2.3.0 ready (posting ok).
group alt.binaries.sounds.mp3
411 No such group alt.binaries.sounds.mp3
list active
215 Newsgroups in form "group high low flags".
.


I see them only when I telnet on the news server locally:
