I have downloaded the latest version of Newsbin Usenet program and it is somehow being blocked by Webroot firewall. When I disable Webroot firewall the program works just fine. When activate the firewall the program starts but cannot access the internet which basically renders it useless.
I have checked what I THINK are all the relevant areas in the firewall and enabled the program but it still won't start with Webroot firewall active.
Are there any suggestions? This is making my crazy.

I got the below response from Webroot Support and all is working fine now. Thank you again for your assistance!
Thank you for contacting Webroot,
