[Connectivity] Suddenlink NNTP authentication

NNTP varies from time to time I find ... the stated max 4 concurrent download thread is sometimes really only 2 or 1, but that usually clears in a day or two.

Sometime this week they flipped a switch and now requires authentication, only it won't accept suddenlink account credentials. I've tried every permutation and combination of authentication ... the secure stuff just times out, and the non-secure reports user credentials refused. I can updated the headers in the groups, but it won't allow me to connect to retrieve the bodies.
