I use NNTP, just as I did when I connected through an SSH tunnel to my
news provider.

I set it by changing the following custom-set-variables:

(custom-set-variables
 '(gnus-select-method 
   '(nntp "localhost" (nntp-port-number 119)))
 '(nntp-address "localhost")
 '(gnus-local-domain "ichimusai.org")
 '(gnus-large-newsgroup 5000)
 )

It was the most obvious way of doing it, am I doning somthing wrong?

Then I reset my .newsrc, ran fetchnews and fired up Gnus.

The only real problem I have is the initial select on the group. After
that, it works beautifully.
