 Unable to connect or 502 Error using 'p' in front of username
Article Problem: I received an email telling me of a "major update done" or "server upgrade" and I should add a 'p' or 'p.' in front of my normal memberid or username and I can no longer connect to my account! I now receive a 502 Error Message.

The most likely reason you are receiving this error is because you are using the incorrect username/memberid -or- you are using the incorrect nntp address.

Some users received an email/communication which erroneously told them to user 'p.' in front of their username/memberid. For example: p.10000001

There was no need for the period. The correct username would have been p10000001

Also, all users who have a username that begins with the letter 'p' should use either our Premium or European server farm:
