Program configuration for PhoNews
Please make the following adjustments to use our news server:
If you already have configured a news server and want to use News.CIS.DFN.DE in addition, press the Menu button and choose Add instead.
In the field Server Name, enter a descriptive name such as "News.CIS.DFN.DE".
Enter the address of our server into Server Adress: news.cis.dfn.de
If you prefer connecting to our server over SSL (encrypted connection), activate the SSL/TLS button. The port number displayed in the adjacent field will automatically switch to 563.
Finally, activate the Authentication button so that the "Username" and "Password" fields appear, and enter your username and password from our e-mail.
Storing your account information in the news reader's configuration is a potential security risk. If you are unsure, please refer to our FAQ at http://news.cis.dfn.de/faq.html#1.6.
It is not necessary to enter a password if your institution is a member of the institutional access scheme (Anwenderzulassung) and you are accessing the server from your institution's network.
