Hello

I've downloaded 2 set of files ... Laura & Linda.

I've monitored the TaskManager-Articles tab & the folders, where the downloaded files are saved.

Concerning Laura's download all is OK. The downloaded files are there... on the disk.

But Linda's download is strange.
I watched the TaskManager-Articles tab .. and it seemed a normal download.
But there are NO files (only one file) on the disk .. where are all the downloaded files?
Please see the attachments.
Which properties must I change .. so that all complete/incomplete downloaded articles/files are really saved on the disk.
Thank you.

BTW
The server is a "NZB server".
I've f.e. downloaded 1.5GB video files with the server successfully.

The first download from 1400+ days ago and the second one from 1600+ days ago.

Did the second download progress at all? What was the download speed? It appears it didn't make into the unpack.

My test goal is how to configure a "NZB-server" to UE.

All my tests I've made also with SABnzbd with the same servers. And all tests with SABnzbd are successful.
That means the contents are there .... f.e. PDf, AVI & JPG files.

I use the same bunch of NZB files to make the tests comparable between UE and SABnzbd.

I've also monitored the UE TaskManager-Console Tab. Its progress was so "rapidly" .. about 20Mbit/s .. my Internet bandwidth is only 32Mbits/s.

In the Console I didn't see any (red) ERROR line .. like f.e. 430 Error.
I saw only "launch" & "success" lines.
BTW .. can I "copy" TaskManager tabs to a file? ... to analyze them?

I've also the feeling that UE/"Articles" didn't write the data on the disk although "Articles" have received the Segments-bodies. Why? I don't know ....
All I can think is speculation. The cause must be in UE. A Properties item?
Thank you.

Try to uncheck "Strict" in the servers properties for the free server.

Also you may try to change "Message-Id" to "Message-id direct" in the articles properties.

As to the second set - in the task manager the "Articles" tab did you see the downloads stuck / pending as in your screenshot or it completely cleared?

BTW the free server isn't free. I've paid. It's free for a low speed channel.

To make the Screenshot of TaskManager-Articles tab I paused the network tasks for 5 minutes.

I think that "Message-id direct" in Properties-Articles is the "Key" to writing on the disk. Thank you.

Now the problem shifts to "UE to Servers".
I speculate that UE (compared to SABnzbd) has "problems" receiving the data from the server.
I saw many 430_Errors in Console .. although from SABnzbd I received the contents of the second NZB successfully (from the Free-Usenet server).
I've checked that Astraweb's Used-traffic is Zero.

BTW -- I asked myself .. is there a handshake flow control in NNTP?
I think .. there is NO handshaking ... ??

Hello

My testsetup:

Software:
1. Usenet Explorer (UE) - allround newsreader - a "Swiss Army knife". ;-)
2. SABnzbd - only one goal - to download a NZB file.

NNTP-Server:
1. primary server - Free-Usenet server - a NZB server.
2. backup/secondary server - Astraweb - a newsreader server

NZB-file:
1. Laura.nzb - a small file.
2. Linda.nzb - a medium file.

All permutation tests are successful except one:
UE tried to download Linda.nzb from Free-Usenet server. Why?

Can UE download a content from a NZB-NNTP-server? How?
Which Properties items must be changed?.. see below
BTW .. actually for UE to download from a NZB-server is only a fraction/subset of UE's work with a normal newsreader server like Astraweb.... right?
Thank you.

List of adjustments:
Properties->Server: Msg-id direct
Properties->Server: Strict - uncheck
Properties->Server: Get headers - uncheck
Properties->Articles: Msg-id direct
Properties->Articles: Detect 'Lines' - uncheck
ELSE.....?
