MS NNTP Bridge failing on one forum RRS feed

  • Question

  • The MS NNTP Bridge is giving me a "Connection unexpectedly closed by server" error in Forte Agent - but ONLY on one forum - http://social.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/genuinevista/threads aka Technet.en-us.genuinevista.

    All my other forums are behaving fine.

    The last message received from the forum is stamped 11 Mar @10:31

    Can anyone repro (or fix it - or tell me what's up?)

  • I've narrowed this down to a single post, with luck.

    The last retrievable post prior to the break has ID <327e4752-a629-496f-85d4-f26b94d3dbaa> (timed Date: Mon, 11 Mar 2013 01:18:32 +0000)

    The first retrievable one after the break has ID <c44ddf2d-bb77-45dd-9c7f-08f28bc20d7b> (timed Date: Tue, 12 Mar 2013 21:21:56 +0000)

     Any attempt to retrieve posts between those two times fails.

  • The forum has always existed, and I've been subscribed in the same way for a year or more.

    The problem was that  ONE POST was effectively denying access to the forum - if you read back up the thread, you'll see where I managed to narrow it down to a relatively narrow time-span.

    Once I used 'catch-up' and then sampled the un-downloaded threads, avoiding the problem post, then all was hunky-dory.
