App gives 501 or 502 error after connecting

Postby RJones » Wed Dec 02, 2015 5:44 pm

I cannot get this app to work. It gives a 501 error about user name and password after connecting, forcing me to disconnect. The info I entered is correct because both Unison and NZBVortex, which I downloaded for a trial, connect properly with exactly the same settings. Is there a solution?

That is strange. What newsserver/provider are you using? With that info I'll create an account and run some tests.

My service provider is Shaw Cable in Canada, and you must be on their network to connect to their Usenet server.

My settings are
Server Address: shawnews.ed.shawcable.net
Port: 119
Connections: 3 (I can have up to 4 and have tested the connection with 1, 2, 3, and 4 with the same results)
No User Name Required
No Password required

When I try the Test Connection button I get the following:
Connecting
Connected
Sending auth
Error: [501] name Name pass Passord

If I remain on, I get a message about socket closing and then a disconnection.

Thanks for any help. I really would like to use the app.

I just took some screen shots to show the issue.

This is fixed in version 1.1.5.
