Follow The Tutorial

Step 1

Download the free version of Alt.Binz here. If you are a contributor of Alt.Binz you can download the latest version from the Alt.Binz forum.

Step 2

After installation you have to setup the Usenet settings. Please press Setup and select Servers from the list.

Now enter the following (you do not have to fill all fields):

  1. (or any name you want)
  2. Address:
  3. Port: 563 for SSL / 119 for non-SSL, tick SSL if you use port 563
  4. Username: your customer id
  5. Password: your API Key

Click Add as primary and then OK.

Step 3

If you start Alt.Binz the first time, you might see a message, that the previous download folder doesn't exist anymore. If not, you can start using Alt.Binz now.

Alt.Binz sets the download folder by default to your AppData directory. We do not recommend to use this system directory for downloads. To change, please open Setup, select Download and select a new path to your new temp directory and download folder.
