You cannot upload on RhinoNewsgroups, which is also true of USENET.net.
RhinoNewsgroups does not have a specified port for SSL. You can connect over port 119 by default. You can also use port 23 and port 80 if 119 is being speed limited by your ISP.
RhinoNewsgroups has good prices and they resell for a good company: Giganews. If you’re looking for the best price deal, however, you might want to take a look at other providers who offer more connections. If your connection isn’t particularly fast, anyway, you may be able to max it out on 8 connections. You can see the list of our leading USENET providers here.
The lack of SSL ports does raise some privacy concerns. You’ll want to take this into account when you sign up.
