Usenet problems?

Anyone else experiencing usenet problems.

Some news groups reporting zero posts since yesterday, incl Plusnet support group, and having queued up some binaries but getting nothing downloading despite only just queueing the headers and the articles only being posted this morning at 4-00am, (I'm using Xnews).

Mods,

Binaries downloading fine with another news reader so - apologies, next time I'll check first - and please feel free to delete.

Thanks.

There seems to be 1 server which has less posts than others, as you can read messages on 1, then when you come back later the post suddently dont exist, then again they return later!


Anyone know what the exact addresses of the servers are so i can connect to 1 rather than usenet.plus.net and get 1 at random

The servers are load balanced so you cannot connect to a specific one from outside of our network.

I however can do this so will now test each of the servers with a few groups to see what results I get.

Most of my groups are totally empty and these usually have 30,000 plus on them daily.

Looks like a real problem on the server.

Also showing no new posts on alt.photography and a couple of other image binary groups.


Sort it out guys, or at least give us another server we can connect to while you fix it.

Yup same here. Some or no new posts, also missing parts of posts in binaries - not seemingly time or capacity related (as expected) just anywhere.
