Is Usenetserver down?

Postby crosgrove » Thu Apr 08, 2021 11:42 am

I don't know if that service is dead, or if I have some error that has crept into my Newsbin configuration....

I am trying to download new headers from news.usenetserver.com, and despite the fact that I am not getting an error messages, I am getting no headers after March 30, 2021. I have tried multiple groups--many of them quite active--and the result is the same--no headers after March 30th, 2021.

Any ideas?

I'm getting current headers from them.

Right click a group select "Post Storage/Use Download Age" then set the "Download Age" to 2. Then try downloading headers normally for that group.

What version of Newsbin are you using?

As always Quade, you nailed it--that did the trick! :) :) :)

And, my version is 6.81 -- 5080.
