I can't post to the rocksolid / novabbs server. Authentication is
rejected. Error 480 on both the clearnet and tor addresses. Admin does
not respond. No idea what is the problem.

Has the admin disabled posting via NNTP? Has the admin gone mysteriously
silent like AIOE and Mixmin?

Is anyone else having problems with authentication?

Yes.
Use a different server.

What is the source of your info? Something more than monosyllabic grunt
would be useful.

Why are all these NNTP admins and servers suddenly going offline and
incommunicado?

Every administrator who does not come forward and make a public
statement is hiding something, and is suspect of dishonesty. I am
getting close to bringing in some researchers to find out what is really
going on.

So, why is this all happening at once? Why is access to Usenet being cut
off? Why are the administrators being eerily silent about it?

Did someone post something that frightened the cyber Pope of Usenet?

See my other reply to you.

Nntp not disabled. I don't know where other admins have gone, but I'm recovering
from a very major surgery after spending 2 months in hospital. I sleep more than
I type right now.

If people are, please let me know.

I was able to replicate these errors. The signup is a snap. But then
authentication repeatedly fails. It is impossible to post to any of the
rocksolid servers provided on the nodes page.

I got the same errors that others are getting for 480 Authentication.

Authentication fails in every case at all the server addresses listed
on the site.

Please advise what I need to try next.

That works.

So far I gather that the user must create the account on novabbs.org to
post via the news.novabbs.org NNTP server. Does this mean accounts
created at rocksolidbbs.com cannot post?

I created accounts at both novabbs.org and rocksolidbbs.com.

I was not able to authenticate at rocksolidbbs.com:119. I am unsure what
that is. I assume that is not actually a regular NNTP server, but rather
a BBS news feed.

Very nice!

That is correct. Only accounts created on novabbs.org can authenticate with
the news server on novabbs.org.

Correct again. rocksolidbbs.com:119 is a Synchronet BBS NNTP server. It's
not really meant to be used by other than the retrobbs web interface, maybe
I should close the port to clearnet to avoid confusion.
