Problem with Header downloads (XOVER)

Postby OMG2011 » Sun May 22, 2016 7:29 am

Hi,
2 days ago header downloads (using NewsBin Pro 6.62 Build 4358) suddenly stopped working. It seems that any XOVER command times out and NewsBin goes into an endless loop of retries.

ARTICLE and GROUP commands seem to work all right.

Anyone else experiencing this with Giganews? The user support doesn't seem to be aware of any problems. So it might be a problem on my side, but what?
Kind regards,

What group is it? You can PM it to me if you don't want it public.

I might set a short "Download Age" and then right click "Post Storage/Use Download Age" and then try again. This will make it try to download "Download Age" worth of headers.

In the server advanced options you might try disabling "XFeatures" and try it. If that fixes it it means you security software is stepping on the header download. Might need to restart Newsbin for this one.

Thanks Quade, it was a general error for all groups. I just figured it out myself. NewsBin couldn't create the files in the Import folder.
Now it's all working again flawlessly.
