SS down now here for 4+ hours. But Newsleecher itself works -- used binsearch.info to create nzb files.

Plus, I too understand that repairs can take time, but I agree with berliner6 about the need for regular news updates from the admin.

SuperSearch still NOT working ... what is happening?

Post by pd_support »

Last Sunday, October 14th: SuperSearch was sending a request, but was not receiving an answer. Suddenly SuperSearch was NOT working anymore (I did not make any changes on my MS Windows 2000 system)!

For my own profit I recently installed NewsLeecher with SuperSearch on the system of my girlfriend (MS Windows XP with another provider and another IP). So I checked if SuperSearch was working on that system ... and yes it was.

October 15th: Uninstalled NewsLeecher, downloaded the 3.8 Final again, requested a new key, reinstalled everything again ... and now SuperSearch is permanently on [initializing] (and the News stand stays blank).

I have imported a SSL Certificate for NewsLeecher (Go Daddy Secure Certification Authority).
I have added https://www.newsleecher.com to trusted websites in IE.
I even switched the firewall to OFF in the modem/router ...
... and YES! SuperSearch is still NOT working!

What happend to SuperSearch last Sunday? What to do to get it working again?

I have 1 PC that works and another that doesn't. They are almost identical. Both XP, both have the same anti-everything. I even ran ipconfig /flushdns. I can's see why one works and the other doesn't. The one that doesn't is able to see the links on the newsleecher site. Normall y I am pretty good at troubleshooting but this one has me stumped. Since the support people here at newsleecher refuse to believe there is a problem I will keep digging until I resolve it.

I know when I make a major change to one of our systems at work I listen to all feedback and promptly post notices. Either the admin here doesn't believe there is a problem or went on vacation. :(

NO Super Search, day 4, Chapter 1

Post by cokecane »

i know of 8 people who use Newsleecher with super search. 3 out of the 8 can search. The 3 also share a common fact. They have a floating IP. The other 5 all have a fixed IP but cannot search. When the 3 get a problem with the search they reboot their router or re connect there modem. WALLA! away they go again. A new IP and searching again. How do we get round this?

Is this a point we all share or just a coincidence?

It isn't that we don't belive the problem, obviously there are issues or else people wouldn't be posting here, but we can't reproduce the problem on our systems so it is difficult to give you an answer.

Personally, i've tried over 8 systems (win2k, xp, vista) on different networks (home, work, friends cable, etc) and they are all able to search. If any of my systems were to have these problems, I could probably figure out what is blocking the connection and have an answer for you. Unfortunately that isn't the case so all I can do is post what we do know that causes connection issues and steps to resolve them (see the Getting Super Search to Work thread).
Please be aware of and use the following pages...
Services Status Page : SuperSearch and Usenet Access server status, retention, server load, indexing time, etc.
Support Request Form : Use this if you have a problem with billing or account status. The forum is only for NewsLeecher application issues.

good news for the guy's @ Newsleecher. I am prepared to let them have a remote login to my PC so they are able to use a PC with this ongoing issue. Let's hope they take advantage of this to help rectify this situation for the whole community.

Just to confirm: my IP is static. The IP on the system of my girlfriend (working SS!) is non-static ...

But is it so difficult to remember what have been changed on Sunday at the SS-servers?
