rest of message:
There could be more than one thing going on here, but I think that the
simplest thing to try is to change the following line:
The nntp scheme should parse out the user name (testmod) and password (qq),
as long as there is not an @ in the user name. When the server asks nntp
for the authentication, it will supply it, hopefully.
What is curious is that having trace/net on should have revealed the place
at which authentication was requested, which it didn't. So there may be
more than one thing going on. Apparently, authentication for nntp is not a
part of the original specification, and is an extension, and not implemented
Give the above change a try before you do much else.
