Switching news servers

Postby zathras2002 » Tue Apr 20, 2021 10:45 pm

I have switched new servers to usenetserver.com.
I have reloaded the news group list and added new groups.
They are not pulling new headers.
The groups are huge and update often so I know there should be new headers.
What am I missing?

Assuming you didn't wipe the existing group folders, you should be able to just set a short "Download age" and update regularly.

Pick a group, right click "Post Storage/Use Download Age" then try downloading headers normally. I'd set the download age to something short like 2-4 days.

Are you able to download otherwise? I mean does the server configuration seem to be correct?
