NNTP Bridge and the Technet.en-US.winserverpowershell forum RRS feed

  • Question

  • Since the NNTP Bridge came back up the Technet.en-US.winserverpowershell forum is missing from the available newsgroup lists.  There are several non-English PowerShell forums in the list, but the English language one is missing.

    Will it be restored?

    Thx!

    Sometimes you need to "refresh" the newgroups list more than once.... This is a bug of the web-service not returning all newsgroups reliably...

    Also you can manually specify ths newsgroup-name if your client supports this..

    I use Thunderbird, so I manually added the line
    Technet.en-US.winserverpowershell:
    to my file
    127.0.0.1.rc
    and now I can see all messages in the forum Technet.en-US.winserverpowershell
    and I can post again to that forum using the NNTP Bridge installed on this PC.

  • That is odd. I'll take a look. It 'should' be showing up, nothing in the service layer changed at all.

  • Marco Shaw, an MVP moderator at Technet.en-US.winserverpowershell posts that he too can't see that forum in the subscription list via the NNTP Bridge.  See:

  • I'm running Tbird here, is it Technet.en-us as the prefix?

    Using which bridge?

    ---------- TELNET.TXT
    Technet.en-US.winserverpowershell 1 16773 y
    Technet.ja-JP.powershellja 1 588 y
    Technet.zh-TW.powershellzhcht 1 246 y
    Technet.es-ES.powershelles 1 191 y

    Aha.   Is  TB  case sensitive for "newsgroup" names?   <eg>

  • On a *brand new* loading of the bridge and Thunderbird apps, winserverpowershell was not there yesterday or so.  I just did a 'Refresh' in TB, and I now see it...  Odd...

  • Hay,

    Sorry for coming in between, I logon to Fourms using Internet Explorer, so may I know what is Codeplex and Thunderbird?

  • Thunderbird = email program

    Codeplex = code that sets up a link/bridge from the web interface over to an email client that supports nntp
