OT: NNTP Bridge

Discussion in 'Windows XP' started by SC Tom, Jun 29, 2010.

    SC Tom Flightless Bird

    Since these newsgroups are going away, I thought I'd try the Answers and
    Forum bridges for use in OE6. I've got it all set up, and it runs well, at
    least as fast as my ISP's and Microsoft's newsgroups.
    My question is, is there any way to start up and log into the NNTP servers
    automatically, without having to go through the Start, Sign-in, then
    minimize it to the notification area? Since they are separate bridges, it
    really is somewhat of a PITA to go through each day. I know, I know, it
    doesn't take much time, but it IS annoying to have to go through the ritual
    every day.
    TIA!

    This bridge is all inclusive and quicker to sign into. Click the icon.
    Click the sign-in button. All done. Minimizes by itself.

    I second Bruce's suggestion. I've found that bridge to be much less
    problematic (no egregiously false counts of unread "posts," no
    disconnects between post headers and contents, etc.) than the Microsoft
    offering. And the one bridge connects to multiple "communities."

    Thanks to both the Bruce's :) I installed it and it seems to work just
    fine. The only change (so far) that I had to make was to make the port for
    the Answers forum 119 instead of 120 (the separate bridges required 119 and
    120).
    Thanks again!

    That link gets me (after I log in):

    "Page Not Found

    The content that you requested cannot be found or you do not have permission
    to view it.

    If you believe you have reached this page in error, click the Help link at

    Microsoft Connect welcome page"

    Not much of a welcome ;-) I had searched Connect before I posted my
    question, and didn't come up with a solution I was looking for. The
    Community bridge seems to work fine, other than I have to manually exit it
    before shutting down or I get an "in use" error.

    You might want to give this NNTP bridge a try at:

    http://communitybridge.codeplex.com/

    This one seems to work better than the one offered by Microsoft, plus you
    only need just one program running for all of the forums vs. two.

    One annoyance that I have with it is that it has no idea if I've ever posted
    or replied to a post. It'll find me if I post, but not any previous ones. I
    post from two different machines with different OS's and news clients and it
    can't "see" the posts from each other. I might have to reinstall the Answers
    bridge just to test that out, but I don't recall that I had this problem
    with it.

    The bridge isn't perfect for sure. Myself, I use it more for notification
    and do the actual replying via the Website. Any post I didn't reply to, I
    delete. I also mark posts I replied to as watched. Ctrl+H works to toggle
    Show Replies To My Messages on and off.

    When I use CTRL+H, it shows nothing. I didn't think of marking a post as
    Watched. I'll try that and see if it shows on my other PC.
    Thanks!

    Re: NNTP Bridge

    I know this thread is kinda old, but I thought I'd ask if any of you have
    had a problem with the community bridge not connecting with the following
    error:

    503 program fault - command not performed
    System.ServiceModel.FaultException: Passport Header Not Found

    Configuration:
    Account: MS Forums
    Server: 127.0.0.1
    Protocol: NNTP
    Port: 119
    Secure(SSL): 0
    Error Number: 503
    Code: 800ccca4

    The only way to correct it is to exit, then restart the bridge. It has only
    happened in the Answers forum, never in the Technet forums (so far).

    Thanks for any insight you may have!

    I am seeing the same thing here too, the only difference is I am using
    port 120 as Hamster is running using port 119.

    I don't know if what I did fixed it for me, or if something has changed on
    their end, but I haven't gotten the error message in a couple of days now.
    All I did was change my Sync Settings to Headers Only. Before it was set to
    All Messages. I normally have it set to Headers Only, but I guess the
    default was All Messages, and I didn't check to change it. No errors since
    then (KOW!).

    It was a problem at the Microsoft end as it was causing problems with
    their NNTP bridge programmes too.

    That should be "Good to know." Someday I'll learn to type. . . or not.
