 |Yes, it does.

Could you tell me what does the server sayes about authentication
against HELP command which is like follows in INN:

% telnet news-server nntp
Escape character is '^]'.
200 localnews.etl.go.jp InterNetNews NNRP server INN 2.2.2 13-Dec-1999 ready (posting ok).
HELP
100 Legal commands
  authinfo user Name|pass Password|generic <prog> <args>
...

It is possible that DNEWS requires another kind of authentication
command.


 |- logging in seems to be successful, but retrieving of group names fails.
 |This may be due to bad / wrong authentication information on the DNEWS
 |server, though (I have access to a Collabra server that carries the same
 |information, so this is not a problem).

With -vv (or -vd) option, you can get the detailed command/response
log between DeleGate and NNTP-server like this:

...
03/28 01:20:04.00 [11977] 1+0: ## S-C 200 news-server InterNetNews NNRP server INN
2.2.2 13-Dec-1999 ready (posting ok).^M
03/28 01:20:04.07 [11977] 1+0: DO_INIT
03/28 01:20:04.07 [11977] 1+0: #### AUTHINFO: USER user1
03/28 01:20:04.07 [11977] 1+0: ## S-C 381 PASS required [][]
03/28 01:20:04.07 [11977] 1+0: ## S-C 502 Authentication error [][]
03/28 01:20:04.07 [11977] 1+0: #### AUTHINFO-RESP: 502 Authentication error^M
...

Also you can peep what DeleGate and NNTP-server are talking with
filters like:
  delegated -Pxxxx -f SERVER=nntp://server FTOSV=-tee FFROMSV=-tee 

Cheers,
