Re: 502 Hit Connection Limit

Today news.newsleecher.com via DNS name (and getting an ipv6 address) is working perfectly, there's no longer any packet loss whatsoever. I checked because now ipv4 is not working at all, pingplotter shows several hops and then 100% packet loss at the server. My guess is they're working on the server.

Re: 502 Hit Connection Limit

What I did for a workaround was to specify the server in newsleecher via ipv4 address, 69.16.179.22, as opposed to using "news.newsleecher.com". This allowed me to leave IPv6 enabled in my router but forced newleechers to access the server via ipv4. I'll keep an eye on ipv6 server access every so of...

Re: 502 Hit Connection Limit

FWIW, I'm running Windows 10 Pro version 20H2, I am (now) a Spectrum customer using a Netgear R7800 with IPv6 disabled because, back when I set it up, the cable company said they did not (yet) support IPv6. I also disabled IPv6 on my Windows desktop as well. These have been my settings for years, s...

Buzzword147 -- I am on Spectrum, so i will try disabling IPv6 on my PC side first before at router level and then report back later.
Did it work?

Re: 502 Hit Connection Limit

I believe I've found the cause, do any of you use Charter/Spectrum internet (I do)? Do you have IPv6 turned on in your router? I pinged both news.newsleecher.com and eu.newsleecher.com using PingPlotter and noticed something. "eu" was completely normal, but "news" showed massive packet loss on sever...

Message box "You are a lovely human being ..."

Has anyone else had Newsleecher abend/freeze with a message box that says only "You are a lovely human being ..."? I've had this happen a few times and only with Newsleecher. I can find no reference on the web to any sort of malware using this phrase, which was my first supicion. Is this perhaps som...

Re: 8.0bx - Downloads stop with 1-5 blocks needed. Queued par files are not unpaused.

I've found that if I go to the search list entry and find the exact rar file that's "stuck" .i.e. blahblahblah.part09.rar and untick it and re-tick it, it redownloads without getting stuck, and things continue normally for the queue entry in question. So it would seem it's not a data issue but a new...

Re: No Bots displayed

Yes, there was, it just wasn't included in the screen clip, I had already tried that and all it would do it is make the resize grab line (immediately below the horizontal scroll bar in the clip, not sure what else to call it) appear and disappear. I tried reinstalling to no avail, but then I deleted...

No Bots displayed

My bots are not longer being displayed during download, and when I try to resize it just resizez the status bar. I'm sure it's just some hotkey I pressed by accident, but no matter what I do I can't get them back, see attached. This is on NL8beta

Same thing happens to me, there's usually 1 rar file that gets stuck and I have to delete the queue entry for it in order to let the par files download, and then one of those may get stuck. This is with b5ufr2

I can get behind that as well, been wanting that for a long time, couldn't understand why it hadn't been done, it's so obvious.

Re: Group not updating like it used to do

What I would really like is a poster whitelist, if you can blacklist a poster why not white list? I have groups where I'm only interested in posts from a couple of quality posters and would love the ability to accepts header/posts ONLY from them. That would've helped solve this problem as well.

Re: NL 7 b12 - Can't register

Don't feel bad, I've been waiting since yesterday morning for an email after trying the password reset page twice, it's obviously not working. I've also emailed support and gotten no reply as of yet. Something must be really munged up. Fortunately I reinstalled nl7b11 and everything is now back to n...
