2.14 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).
Unsubscribe to the current group, or, as will be the case here, subscribe to it (gnus-browse-unsubscribe-current-group). 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.
