Why login Problems with Power Usenet between 2 -2:15 AM

Postby Kraut2003 » Tue Apr 11, 2006 4:35 am

Every Day I get the following Message in my NB 5.1 Status between 2-2:15 AM

04/11/2006 02:14:31 SERVER=powerusenet, MSG=The Username or Password is Wrong - Contact your News Server Support Department (it's not Newsbin)

Newshosting ist working fine at the same time so its not my Internet Connection and after this break its working fine again. My account with Powerusenet is active / OK when I login at their HP

Any Help / Answer

Do they do Server Maintainnance at this time

They do not have a Network Status Page on their HP

That's interesting, I've never noticed. I'll keep an eye on mine and see if it happens to me.

Are you actively downloading during that time or are you idle? NewsBin does timeout connections after awhile, I wonder if it is reconnecting before the server realizes it disconnected? If you are running at the maximum connections, that could explain it.
