3.14 Browse Foreign Server


You will be queried for a select method and a server name. Gnus will then attempt to contact this server and let you browse the groups there (gnus-group-browse-foreign-server).

A new buffer with a list of available groups will appear. This buffer will use the gnus-browse-mode. This buffer looks a bit (well, a lot) like a normal group buffer.

Here’s a list of keystrokes available in the browse mode:


Go to the next group (gnus-group-next-group).


Go to the previous group (gnus-group-prev-group).


Enter the current group and display the first article (gnus-browse-read-group).


Enter the current group (gnus-browse-select-group).


Toggle subscription of the current group (gnus-browse-toggle-subscription). You can affect the way the new group is entered into the Group buffer using the variable gnus-browse-subscribe-newsgroup-method. See see Subscription Methods for available options.


Exit browse mode (gnus-browse-exit).


Describe the current group (gnus-browse-describe-group).


Describe browse mode briefly (well, there’s not much to describe, is there) (gnus-browse-describe-briefly).


This function will delete the current group (gnus-browse-delete-group). If given a prefix, this function will actually delete all the articles in the group, and forcibly remove the group itself from the face of the Earth. Use a prefix only if you are absolutely sure of what you are doing.
