Are these exact two lines triggering off:
innxmit: cannot authenticate with 192.168.0.3: Numerical argument out of
I do not manage to reproduce it :-/
The syntax of these two lines is valid!
According to our documentation:
The second field is a user name, and the third is a password. If either
the username or password is empty, then that portion of the
authentication will not occur. (For example, a server may require only
a username, in which case the password is not necessary. Note that a
username is mandatory with AUTHINFO USER/PASS.)
The optional fourth field specifies the type of authentication to use.
At present, the only recognized "authentication style" is authinfo; this
is also the default. It means that AUTHINFO USER/PASS commands are used
to authenticate to the remote host. (These NNTP commands are described
in RFC 4643.)
## UUNET needs a password, MIT doesn't.
":authinfo" is optional at the end of the line.
I therefore still do not understand why you had this error.
