alt.binz and Newsbin

Postby Quade » Tue Nov 11, 2014 11:41 am

User reported that alt.binz could download files that Newsbin couldn't. He provided some NZB's to try. I fed one into Newsbin and all the blocks went red and the logging tab showed "430" errors. I then installed and fired up alt.binz and tried the same NZB.

It looked like the files were downloading. I started to sweat bullets.

So, I dug in deeper.

1 - Alt.binz download folder contained none of the files it claimed to download.

2 - Found the logging tab and it reported

So, it wasn't really able to download files that Newsbin couldn't. It just looked like it was downloading.
