Usenet problems

Message 1 of 6
(5,054 Views)

Hello.  For the 2nd time in a week, I am having difficulties connecting to a news server using port 119, or with SSL ports 563 and 443.  The first time it occurred, I was unable to track down what was wrong before it began to work again (3 days or so)  It just started again today.  I was wondering if anyone else was having the same troubles.  I disabled all spyware, virus, and firewall programs with no success.  It was working this morning, and I made no changes to the system nor installed any new programs or updates of any kind.

 

Thanks

 

Jim

Well, it's been working steadily since Sunday.  I'm going to assume that whatever was wrong was not in my equipment, and has since been fixed/replaced/magically repaired somewhere down the line.  In any case, thanks for your interest, hopefully this is a closed matter.

What news server?

 

I hope that you are not talking about the Verizon one, since it has been discontinued.

The news server is Giganews, and as a test, Astraweb.  It would have been difficult for Verizon's discontinued service to have worked earlier in the week, let alone this morning.  As an update, its a sporadic problem apparently, in that it began working again for about 2 hours then cut off.   Still not working as of 4 PM.

Ok.

For example: Actiontec, MI-424-WI, C

The router is an Actiontec MI424 WR Rev E. 

 

The problem seems to have disappeared again, I was able to connect all day yesterday, and still can as of early this morning.  Hopefully it won't reappear in a few days, as it did last week.
