Failure to connect

Postby ptg701 » Sun Dec 13, 2015 6:44 pm

I could not connect to my news server with the previous version of NZBin and I can still not connect with 1.1.5.
NZBin connects and disconnects over and over.
When I run the test I get a dialog that it could not connect to my server and to check my settings.
I am using the same setting I use for Unison and NZB Vortex, both of which have no problems connecting and downloading.

What newsserver do you use?
And does it requires authorisation?

As you told me by email, you are using Newsguy as news provider.

Connecting to a newsserver normally takes 1 - 3 seconds, but connecting to the Newsguy newsserver takes 10 –15 seconds.
The current NZBin version is using an internal timeout setting of 5 seconds and that is too short for Newsguy.
This setting will be configurable in the next NZBin release (1.1.6) and that should fix the issue you currently have
