SuperSearch awaiting / receiving response

Post by muddyfunkster »

Hi all,

I've recently signed up to NewsLeecher and SuperSearch, which was all working fine to begin with, but now I am having trouble with SuperSearch. I dont think I've changed anything in my setup either...

If I search for something and press enter/go it says Awaiting Response, and then sometimes switches to Receiving Response, but nothing is ever found and the search options remain greyed out.

I am able to access the GigaNews servers and update articles and download etc, but just cant search.

I've disabled the Linksys WRT54G firewall, and have set up port forwarding for ports 23, 80 and 119, which didnt make any difference.

Have tried clearing the IE temporary internet files as well.

Can anyone confirm if its working for them or anything i can try to fix this?

I am based in the UK

Ok, so I've been able to get it working by using the Alt supersearch port 23

For the benefit of anyone else, you can access this by going to Options > Advanced > Use Alt. Supersearch Port.

I have also set port forwarding for port 23.

Am using NewsLeecher v3.9 Beta 13

Same here. This is the kind of instability I can not stand. Glad I don't pay for supersearch.
