    i have the problem with the new Client 7 that i cant search on Server in the

    is that an GW 7 Issue or perhaps a German Client Issue ?

    can anyone verify that ?

    Hi!

    I developed the open source Community NNTP bridge. During the development I found several problem with the existing Web-Service
    interface.

    Here is my bug report, ordered by priority which should be solved in the future:
    1.
    If a article is moved to another forums, the NNTP-Index will be set to 0. This means that the bridge is not able to use this message. You can try
    it with your MS bridge the following article, which was moved and now has an article number of 0:
    GROUP Msdn.en-US.vcgeneral
    ARTICLE c2547336-aeb1-4260-b2a4-1ce9a0f60731
    See also: http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/reportabug/thread/04ee089d-4f2e-4da4-91e9-ca4c01240fb9
    2.
    GetAllForumNewsGroupsByBrand does not always return all available
    groups and it also returns some groups twice

    It would also be nice, if we could do the same thing like in the Web-Interface like:
    -
    Mark an article as Propose Answer or Mark Answer, Unmark answer,
    -
    Edit an article
    -
    Change the Type of an article (Question / Discussion)
    -
    Apply the HasCodeLabel attribute

    Will there be some development in the future?

    On the other hand, I currently develop a alternative bridge, which does not use the server-generated article numbers. Therefor I use the
    following functions:
    -
    GetAllForumsByBrand and GetForum
    -
    GetForumMessagesBrief and GetMessage
    -
    CreateReply and CreateQuestionThread

    With these methods I am able to display much more to the newsreader than just the article. I also create an NNTP-message if an article
    was marked as answer or if it was moved, edited or marked as answer.
    But currently I do not get this info with the GetForumMessagesBrief command, which is very fast I need to use he
    GetMessage for each message
    So: Is it possible to add an GetForumMessages method, which have exactly the same behavior as GetForumMessagesBrief
    but contains all the data for each message?

    If such a function would exist, the alternative way of the bridge (with local generation of the NNTP message number) would
    be usable, because it would be mostly as fast as the currenty NNTP-Bridge and would provide much more features.
    And in a long-term view, you can remove the NNTP-dependencies form your web-service / database which would make
    it easier for you to maintain your forums!
    I can also sent you my source code of the alternative local-DB (SQL-CE) bridge, so you can take a deeper look into this

    It would be great if you could at least respond to this post, if you have seen it maybe you can also respond to
    each points in the post

    Hi!

    I developed the open source „Community NNTP bridge“. During the development I found several problem with the existing Web-Service interface.

    Here is my bug report, ordered by priority which should be solved in the future:
    Jochen:

    A couple of comments:

    1. You did not mention the other problem with the MS-generated messsage numbers, namely that they are not stable. A post may have one message number on one occasion, and then have a different number on a later occasion. This completely messes up readers that
    do not cache the actual messages.

    While your idea of generating your own set of message numbers is attractive, would it not be good if Microsoft fixed the message number issue themselves? How hard could it really be?

    2. When a post is requested by Message-ID (not message number), the web service requires the group to be specified. This should not be necessary, because Message-ID's are unique. More seriously, if the wrong group is specified (but with the correct brand) then
    the message will actually be found, but there is no signal that it was not found in the specified group. This results in the bridge returning an invalid message to the client.

    I am happy to announce that the NNTP Bridge is now available to additional Microsoft Answers power users by request. For those who are not familiar, the NNTP Bridge serves as a channel for newsreaders to read and write content to Answers forums. But if you
    don’t already know what it is, you probably don’t need it.
    The NNTP Bridge is not a Microsoft product. Instead, MVPs from the community built and maintain the bridge and MVPs made up the original user group.

    The Microsoft service that is required to use the NNTP Bridge with Microsoft Answers has a limited number of additional seats available to power users who are not MVPs. Requests for access will be reviewed by Microsoft on an individual basis, with priority
    given to power users who answer a high volume of posts while maintaining a high standard of conduct in the forum.

    If you are interested in using the NNTP Bridge, send an email to
    MSFTMod@microsoft.com with the URL of your Answers user profile. If you meet the criteria, we will contact you with instructions to download and begin using the NNTP Bridge.

    DB:3.31:Thread: Nntp Posting Kaput? 89

    oh I figured it out. Seems that when I set up the forums in GW I did so in Caching mode and selected that they upload to the online mailbox. Seems I was using online mode the past couple of days after updating to ftf7 without realizing it. Online mode was failing. Just a while ago I deleted all of the forums to reset (cause reset wasn\'t working - as a test) when I realized I was in online mode. Thought to myself, myself yer really stooopeeeed! Flipped to caching again and wouldn\'t you know it got all kinds of errors and the caching mode began to sync the deleted forums into nothingness. Don\'t ever make that mistake with server dozen folders (nntp) cause you\'ll have to cancel out of a plethora of error messages. Reset and voila! She works.

    Oh the pain of it.

    Appoloigies if this is a double post, just posted a reply via the

    web but

    it didn\'t seem to go anywhere. Not sure cause I don\'t often use

    the web forums.

    Seems to me FTF7 (not ftf6) has buggered the news reader. Can

    download but

    not upload.

    RRRR

    Thanks all for you input.

    Just to give you a few ideas of what kind of messages would be

    rejected by

    the news server:

    - messages need an email address in the From: field. It does

    not have to

    be a valid address, but it must have the structure of a valid

    email

    address, e.g. name@domain

    If the From field of your message does not contain something

    that looks

    like an email address, then the message will be rejected

    - messages have a size limit and certain types of attachments

    are

    rejected. So if you try to post a message with an attachment,

    the

    attachment might be the cause of the message rejection

    - messages have a crosspost limit of 2 newsgroups. However some

    newsgroups

    (like this one) count double. So for example if you are

    crossposting to 2

    OES newsgroups, this will count as a fourfold crosspost and the

    message

    will be rejected

    If a message gets rejected, the news server should return an

    error code

    and a message to the newsreader. Depending on the newsreader you

    use, you

    might be able to see this error code and message. Some

    newsreaders make

    this easy to find while for others, it is very difficult to see

    the

    message from the server.

    What are the reasons that nntp access was discontinued?

    As a direct result a lot of long-time, knowledgable users seem to have abandoned the forums especially on the Macromedia side - nntp was just so much quicker let alone the possibilities to filter and quickly save topics as plain text. This is more than a bit disappointing.

    In addition to Craigs answer, you may want to try using the Socks proxy.

    That\'s what I do, albeit with Netscape, not OE, and it works perfectly

    fine, and doesn\'t suffer from the limitattions the News proxy has (only

    one external Newsserver possible). Additionally, you might check your

    filter setup, as it sounds odd that your OE is capable to connect

    without using a proxy.

    It would be real good if some (if not all) of the discussion forums were available through a news reader via the NNTP protocol.

    Reading forums with e.g. Mozilla News would be fast and nice experience.

    NNTP protocol allows for user authentication, so it is implementable for news server access.

    It would be real good to provide interface between WEB and NNTP variants (e.g. each web page to have a

    otherwise count me out. Enough with all the changes which usually cause yet more people to leave and never to return. This whole support process (and all the changes you've done since eliminating NNTP access) has lost alot of regulars who used to frequent here. We don't need all this fluff, eye candy, etc. Just give us simple plain text based access. I'm not going to sign back to debate anything. Bring back NNTP.

    DB:3.04:Snmp Oid For Nntp (News)? xk


    There are no OIDs for NNTP. Really, you could have said TCP here, and the same would have been true. In order to monitor the actual NNTP traffic, you would need to have an RMON probe or something similar that analyzes the transit traffic, and allows you to break out the different protocols.

    That said, there may be some NNTP SNMP instrumentation on your NNTP server that you could use to graph connections in MRTG.

    DB:3.04:Nntp Access fs


    Just an update on my earlier post, i was able to send a message to a created newsgroup and also locate the message within Outlook Express.this is a good beginning I can use this approach and create a NNTP for the forums using the new code that you checked in. If this approach is okay with you, let me know and i can start off.go We might need to create a different implementation than James as James stores all the messages under a single folder. For e.g. all messages for com.test.mytest is stored in a folder called com.test.mytest. If the number of messages keeps growing(and with the popularity of JBoss, it sure will!!), storing 50000 msgs under a folder will be a bad decision atleast under Windows. For the pilot phase, i can use James and i will look at other ways of implementing it.yes I want to be independant of James. You will write an NNTP module later. You can use EJBs for the storage, it will work fine.For the moment I have 70000 messages in my test forum.julien

    I know that some of you will be new to this forum since MS closed and deleted the NNTP newsgroup from their servers and so many ISPs no longer offering their own nntp access so I thought I'd start a new thread instead of having the info buried in a few different
    threads.
    Microsoft had created a bridge or rather two different bridges you can use for their forums. One bridge for the social hierachy which includes this forum, MSDN TechNet. The other for Office/Windows Answers. Originally there was one bridge but someone
    decided to split it into two separate ones hence the last forum update to fork the two form applications. (My interpetation not anything I've heard from Microsoft but based on what happened.)
    I tried the MS bridge some time agoand found it, well on par with this forum. I understand that the latest version(s) of the bridge is better than the onesI tried but I'm tired of experimenting with it and gave up.
    One of the MVPs [Jochen Kalmbach] has been so fustrated that he combined the MSDN Forums Client from Codeplex:
    http://msdnforumsclient.codeplex.com/and into an C# NNTP server:
    http://spnews.codeplex.com/to create his own nntp bridge that will work with this forum, MSDN, TechNet Answers instead of having two different bridges approach that MS
    is taking. You can download it at
    http://communitybridge.codeplex.com/
    He's been updating it very quickly and the reports from people who have used it say it is far superior to the forums interface. If you try it or one of the MS bridges report back how well it is working for you.

    I also use the web interface when I\'m away from my normal computer. The

    if there are new replies in thoese threads and this independently of the

    My vote is for NNTP for the following reasons:-InterfaceThe layout will always be the same. There is no need to worry about having to navigate when the site gets redesigned. One can customize my reader as much as want, rather than being restricted to what the forum software offers.SpeedOne can obtain all new posts in a few moments, rather than having to navigate each thread. Also since it is mostly pure text it is much more efficient and reduces data download which is great for mobile connections.FlexibilityLike the interface, one is not limited to the functionality of the forum software. If there is something my newsreader cannot do, one can just code in the appropriate functionality.Someone mentioned about being able to see which threads have new replies; many nntp clients can do this, just perhaps not some or all of the Microsoft ones.

    DB:2.99:The Future Of The Nntp Bridge On Msdn fz


    One of the tools that are required for authentication for the NNTP Bridge was decommissionedon June 18th. We were aware that the URL that
    was being decommissioned would affect Microsoft Community, we were not aware that the URL for the MSDN forums was also being decommissioned however.

    This resulted in the NNTP Bridge becoming unavailable to our customers without prior communication.
    First and foremost I want to apologize for the lack of communication around this decommissioning; it was never our intention to make these changes without first alerting you, the community.

    The unfortunate result of this decommissioning is that the NNTP Bridge will no longer be accessible.
    Without an upgrade for this tool, the NNTP Bridge can no longer function.
    We have investigated the amount of resources it would take to get the tool upgraded and it is simply too significant to undertake. Doing so would greatly affect our ability to support new features and improvements for MSDN.

    Why was this decision made?
    In the last month only 0.178% of our community members used the Bridge as part of their interactions here on MSDN. While we understand how useful
    the tool is to that .0178%, and how important those members are, based on this usage information we could not justify putting the
    amount of resources needed into maintaining the NNTP Bridge.

    I apologize again for the lack of forewarning, had we realized
    this was going to happen so soon we would have reached out to the community in a much more timely fashion.
    Thank you for your understanding.

    When I got into work this morning, I checked my email and newsgroups as usual. When I selected adobe.photoshop.lightroom, my newsreader chugged away for a minute or so and then gave me a "host not found" error. I tried again a few minutes later, with the same result.

    So I decided to browse over to http://forums.adobe.com and see if the forums were up. Imagine my surprise when I discovered that

    (a) there's new forum software

    (b) there was no NNTP-visible announcement of the new forum software

    (c) NNTP will no longer be supported.

    Is Adobe trying to alienate a certain class of user? If so, they're succeeding.

    I have used NNTP for a decade and a half. It is a highly efficient way of sharing information. Using a newsreader, I can see the list of postings since my last visit (and *only* those posting), or I can see all postings. I can sort them quickly, in any order I wish. The listing will have only the information I choose to show (in my case, it's typically Subject, Author, and Date/Time, all in one line, producing a highly compact, information-dense display that can't be matched by forum software). From that listing, I can easily and quickly respond to postings or decide to post something new. Oh, and I can do all of that for all of my newsgroups, from one place.

    Getting similar functionality with this new software will apparently require an RSS reader for the listing, a browser to read each posting I'm interested in (opening in a new window or tab), and a browser to post new messages. Every page I view will have all sorts of wrapper cruft - headers (with a shopping cart icon! boy, I really need *that* when I'm reading or posting!), footers, formatting, etc. That all takes time to load and adds visual clutter, both of which get in the way of my primary task, which is giving and receiving information.

    And, of course, if I read several forums/newsgroups per day, I need all of the above for each one. And they're all different. Yeah, I'll do *that*.

    I searched for NNTP across the forums and read the thread about how horrible NNTP is because of overquoting and (gasp!) lack of formatting. I have one reaction: GIVE ME A BREAK!!!!!!!!!!

    Overquoting? It's quite easy to trim your quoting, and it is also proper ettequitte. Anyone who doesn't is an idiot and will probably find other abuses to commit using this new software.

    Lack of formatting? Hardly. This posting has formatting. It's got paragraphs (remember those from English class? It sure seems like a lot of web forum users don't), a numbered (well, lettered) list, and use of capitalization and other special characters for emphasis. Maybe it's not as flashy as using boldfaced clever smileys and lots of random fonts, but it's pretty darn readable anyway, isn't it?

    Let us not forget why we are here. We are not here to be entertained. We are here to give and receive information about products we use.

    I have gotten a lot of benefit over the past couple of years from the Lightroom forums, in large part *because* of the efficiency of NNTP. I simply don't have the time to devote to accessing them without NNTP, so I will only be rarely checking in, which means I will lose a valuable source of information.

    Adobe, you have succeeded in alienating at least one customer. Congratulations.

    DB:2.97:Please Bring Back Nntp pm


    Using NNTP through Outlook Express has always been a convenient and quick way to participate in the Adobe forums, but now it's all over.

    Ease of use is important to me and trying to use the web interface for the forums is just a "pain in the ...." and I won't bother.

    Unfortunately, If Adobe ever brings back NNTP, a lot of users will already be gone. And they way Adobe communicates the changes, who will know about it?

    At Brainshare A\'dam I tried to find someone who had a working NNTP

    client...

    I didn\'t find anyone. Most of the users use the web-browser, the others

    have the same problem.

    It\'s a few mounts now that the service isn\'t working for nntp clients (

    I use Forte Agent for years without any problem). Complained to Novell

    about it, but no answer (quite common these days).

    annoy /onNovell, making it works as one... maybe its time that Novell

    is going to work as one.annoy /off.

    Hope for the better.

    I know others use XanaNews.

    Oh and I\'m based in the UK.

    Ok

    Hi.

    Tonight we\'re making a little change. We\'re switching out all of our

    hardware that runs these forums. worldwide panic Hang on...if the

    planets align and the money spent on the witch doctor wasn\'t wasted,

    you shouldn\'t notice anything more than about a 20 minute outage around

    6 or 7 pm MST then all will be well with the world.

    HOWEVER (and you knew there had to be a catch) if you use the DNS name

    of support-forums.novell.com.....we\'re not using that any more. If you

    use forums.novell.com *THAT\'s* the one we\'ll be using from here on out

    for all forums (support, developer, education). Don\'t panic though,

    we\'re still leaving our old hardware up and running with the

    support-forums.novell.com name attached so you won\'t be left out in the

    cold.......yet......so I would encourage you to use the

    forums.novell.com name at your earliest convenience (or before the old

    hardware dies, whichever comes first). You can switch and your news

    reader shouldn\'t skip a beat. [Disclaimer: if everything tonight goes

    to hell in a handbasket, it\'s not my fault....I\'ll point the finger at

    someone else]

    Since October 27, at about 6PM Eastern Time, I have been unable to retrieve new messages in the scripting forum (NNTP name Msdn.en-US.scripting). There is no reported error; just no messages. If I look at the forum via the web - something I usually
    cannot do when I have the most time - I see that the forum has been quite busy. As the bridge still works for other forums, I assume that there is a problem with the interface between the web forum and the NNTP support; can this please be fixed, as not
    having the NNTP access makes it virtually impossible for me to follow this forum?-- Jeff Zeitlin

    DB:2.96:Thread: Nntp Server Changes xf


    If you access our forums via the NNTP interface, you need to make one

    little change as soon as possible in your reader to ensure continuity

    in using our forums. The essentials are outlined in the NNTP section

    of our forum FAQ (NetIQ, Novell, SUSE, openSUSE)

    This affects all of The Attachmate Group\'s business units. Currently

    all TAG forums can be found on both of our servers. Select the

    appropriate DNS name for your reader:

    Server A

    nntp.novell.com

    nntp.netiq.com

    Server B

    nntp.suse.com

    nntp.opensuse.org

    *NOTE: The old server names of forums.novell.com and

    forums.opensuse.org will no longer work after March 31, 2013

    This has no effect on anyone using the web interface.

    In a nutshell, you need to change the server DNS entry as soon as you

    get around to it. After March 31st, 2013 the old server name will no

    longer work. In news readers tested, message pointers remained intact

    so it was no big deal to change.

    WHY?

    We\'ve moved our NNTP servers out from behind our A10 switch, which was

    causing some problems with some readers. It was the A10 that allowed

    us to use the same DNS for HTTP and NNTP, hence the need for a new name

    in NNTP.

    Du musst deinen Account nicht lschen. Es gengt doch, ihn einfach nicht mehr zu benutzen.

    Ich finde das Reinquatschen in jedes Thema und Posten von 2-3 Beitrgen hintereinander als abstoend,

    Solche Foren sind aber nun mal dazu da, dass jeder, der meint, etwas zum Thema beitragen zu knnen, dies auch tut. Wenn ich dich an deinen Anfang in den Answers-Foren erinnern darf: Da hast du diese Foren mit deinen Beitrgen praktisch berschwemmt
    und ein nicht unbedeutender Anteil war nur eine etwas anders formulierte Wiedergabe der schon gegebenen Lsung, so dass bei vielen (bei mir auch) der Eindruck aufkam, da will jemand mit aller Gewalt Punkte sammeln. Nun, das hatte sich dann ja langsam
    eingespielt und ich denke, alle hatten spter die fachliche Kompetenz deiner Beitrge geschtzt.

    da dies zu einer Vollmllung meines Emailacounts fhrt.

    Wer zwingt dich, deinen Mail-Account vollmllen zu lassen? Anscheinend liegt es daran, dass die Teilnahme an Webforen einfach viel zu umstndlich ist. Da wren wir wieder bei dem Schwachsinn, den diese Foren im Vergleich zu den Newsgroups
    darstellen. Sie sind nur via Newsreader ertrglich und das knntest du auch tun. Da kann dich keine schlechte Forensoftware gngeln, du allein hast die vllige Kontrolle ber Darstellung und Inhalt und kannst Leute, die du nicht lesen
    willst, einfach filtern lassen. Du siehst obigen User dann gar nicht mehr und es ist auch nicht erforderlich, Benachrichtigungen auf den Mail-Account zu leiten. Dass sowas berhaupt gemacht wird, ist ein eindeutiger Beweis fr die Unzulnglichkeit
    dieses Foren-Konstrukts. Die neuen Answers-Foren werden von vielen als piece of garbage bezeichnet und so sehe ich das auch. Die ganze Forengeschichte ist fr sporadische Fragesteller ganz passabel, aber fr professionelle Teilnahme einfach
    vllig untragbar. Wenn ich beim ffnen eines Threads via Webbrowser sekundenlang bis minutenlang auf die Darstellung des Inhalts warten muss, wie es nun mal der Fall ist, dann krieg ich einen Blutrausch! :-/

    Unfortunately I don't think the Webmail server knows how to speak NNTP although it's a good feature request.

    If you want to have the webmail interface send mail to groups you control you could create a mailing list for that group that forwards the message to a NNTP gateway or invokes a program to deliver the message to the appropriate newsgroup.

    I remember the old Netscape Collabra Server shipping with such a program that could be integrated into the old Netscape 3.6 Messaging Server so in theory it is possible.

    I hope this helps some.

The NNTP feed is gone, see the previous topics for why the email system is not yet an acceptable substitue and now when I try to make use of the web inteface, I find this fancy shmancy DHTML WYSIWYG editor breaks my browser's spell checker utility.

    I used to read the MS newsgroups because they provided so much information about how people misused their computers and how these mistakes could be fixed. I have been able to help many people with this knowledge.
    This valuable source of information is now closed tous becausewe can't read a forum as if it were a newsgroup.

    DB:2.93:Thread: New Forum 'Features' 1s


    A quick rundown of the main new forum features we now have. Keep in mind that NNTP doesn\'t support most of this.

    * Easily selectable font size and COLOR if that floats your boat.

    * Ability to create groups. If you want to have your own private \'forum\' here on these forums to discuss things with a group of your choice, you can create a group.

    * Expandable/Collapsable forum groups. If all you ever do is visit the developer forums, you can collapse the rest of the forums on the home page so you only see the forum set you\'re interested in. Based on user testing we\'ve also expanded and given more detail to the individual forums at the forum home page level. The trade off was aesthetics and a smaller forum home page, but the people tested found this style more useful.

    * Upgradability. Since we\'re only using CSS to style the vBulletin default template, we don\'t have to manually update the template every time a vBulletin update is released...and that happens quite regularly. Security updates wil be able to be installed more quickly with less resource expended.

    * There is a new calendar function that, to be honest, I haven\'t explored a lot yet. Maybe we\'ll find it useful, maybe not. We\'ll see. Suggestions welcome in this area.

    * Tabs that make forum functions easy to get to

    * Integration with the Novell web site including the header which makes navigation from the forums to other areas of the Novell web site easier.

    * Other stuff I can\'t think of right now. :-)

    You\'ll probably run into a few bugs (like the \'Subscriptions\' link still pointing to our development server) and I\'d appreciate if you bring them to my attention so we can get them fixed. If you\'re using NNTP for forum access, you can just ignore all of this because it shouldn\'t affect you, NNTP just works like it always has.

    So I finally took the plunge and went from NNTP to HTTP (seemed like a good time while changing my computer) - you would know me as JJB from NNTP posts, some questions if you don\'t mind.

    I went to this forum and I subscribed to it, so what happens now? It doesn\'t seem like anything changed with the first page that comes up after I log in, I assumed that forums I subscribe to would show on some home page or favorites lists for easy access. I can get to this chat forum by choosing it manually, but... so is there a home page I can configure or some easy way to quickly see what forums I\'m subscribed (ie: interested in)?

    I wanted to quickly locate all my NNTP posts by searching on JJB (which shows in all my posts) and open each thread going back a few months, and subscribe to each one, so I would get an email notification if somebody put in a reply to something I put in earlier (or was asking for more info on something I helped with), but searching JJB didn\'t bring up all my posts - odd... in any case if I understand correctly, when I post something (such as this) or reply to a post or so on, it will auto add to my subscriptions, and I\'ll get an email notification on my email when there\'s new posts, or I can look at my subscriptions and see them there - do I have this straight?

    Any other tips for a user going from NNTP to HTTP would be appreciated.

    Thanks!

    DB:2.88:Thread: Nntp Messages Synced To Iphone 9z


    This is a really strange one - one of our users has added some NNTP newsgroups in the GW Client frontend. The really strange thing is that as he reads each post (I imagine the body is downloaded at that point) it is synchronised to his iPhone!

    The Newsgroup folder is inside the cabinet, but the newsgroup posts are being synchronised straight into the iPhone inbox - it even threads them correctly!

    Very strange edge case and something I\'m sure wasn\'t tested as 99% of users don\'t user the NNTP functionality of the GW client. But could do with looking at and turning off.

    Thanks a lot, Microsoft.
    I was pleased and happy to contribute to the discussions online, while I was able to do so via my NNTP reader. Then Microsoft changed things, and tried to cut us NNTP guys off at the knees. Fortunately, there was a workaround that made it possible for
    me to participate again.
    Now I find out that Microsoft has once again taken it upon themselves to cut us off again. Even their own NNTP connectivity tool no longer works, much less the CommunityServer tool that worked previously.

    So now Microsoft can just walk west until their collective hats float-- I won't be back here as a participant until they get NNTP service working again.

    Is the ability to access the Answers forums through an NNTP orCommunity Bridge going to be an option as it was before this upgrade? Even with all the problems there were with using that method, it was still easier than navigating each forum like I have
    to now.
    Why does the forum not remember who I am each time I return? Before, I could log in and not have to bother with logging in again on subsequent visits. Now I have to login every time I navigate away from the page.
    I have found this "upgrade" to be a step backwards in performance, usability, and ease of access. Actually, I find the whole forums idea a giant step backwards from the newsgroups, but that's a whole 'nother issue :)

    As of right now no. I have Community Bridge that I use for Technet and Genuine forums but the will not work on Answer 2.0. According to their web site this was posted on the 28th of Feb.

    Can anyone recommend an NNTP newsreader that will allow sorting on multiple columns, has filtering, doesn't involve multiple windows (slider trays, or whatever you call them, acceptable)? I would use Thunderbird, but I can't figure out to luanch the app with command line arguments and don't to mix my email stuff with the nntp stuff so multiple profiles would be a must. I currently use OE on my win box, but haven't been able to find one for the Mac.

    DB:2.85:Nntp Newsreader c7

    Hello,

    My guess would be anywhere you want. If you are to call on the file, and it is associated with the proper application, then it should launch the appropriate program automatically when you open that file.

    I just experimented by creating a text file on my desktop in plain-text, inserting the sample argument, and then associated that file with Thunderbird. When I double-clicked on the text file, Thunderbird opened only a new mail window (nothing else visible).

    So, it would appear that the script worked (although I don't know what it was supposed to do anyway). But, it appeared to call directly on Thunderbird, and did not open the entire program as usual - it only presented a new mail message (like if you were to click on new message).

    I hope this helps.

    Unfortunately the NTTP capabilities in the GW client are just not up to

    the task of handling large newsgroups like these. It falls over on its

    use GW for serious NTTP activities, it is impossible. Stick with

    If you access our forums via the NNTP interface, you need to make one

    little change as soon as possible in your reader to ensure continuity

    in using our forums. The essentials are outlined in the NNTP section

    of our forum FAQ (NetIQ, Novell, SUSE, openSUSE)

    This affects all of The Attachmate Group\'s business units. Currently

    all TAG forums can be found on both of our servers. Select the

    appropriate DNS name for your reader:

    Server A

    nntp.novell.com

    nntp.netiq.com

    Server B

    nntp.suse.com

    nntp.opensuse.org

    *NOTE: The old server names of forums.novell.com and

    forums.opensuse.org will no longer work after March 31, 2013

    This has no effect on anyone using the web interface.

    In a nutshell, you need to change the server DNS entry as soon as you

    get around to it. After March 31st, 2013 the old server name will no

    longer work. In news readers tested, message pointers remained intact

    so it was no big deal to change.

    WHY?

    We\'ve moved our NNTP servers out from behind our A10 switch, which was

    causing some problems with some readers. It was the A10 that allowed

    us to use the same DNS for HTTP and NNTP, hence the need for a new name

    in NNTP.

    I am new to Java programming but have done lots of programming with Perl. I am trying to use a java .jar library I found on source forge to do NNTP communications. The name of the jar file is jNNTPe.jar. I have noticed that in all of the source files for the library the file starts with something like:

    package NNTP;

    I am guessing that I need to include a line like:

    import NNTP.*;

    in my code but when I try a trivial example like:

    import NNTP.*;

    class HelloWorld {
    public static void main(String[] args) {
    System.out.println("hello");
    }
    }

    javac fails with the error
    package NNTP does not exist.

    I have a classpath of
    CLASSPATH=.
    and jNNTPe.jar in the current working directory when I compile.

    Could someone please suggest how to get this simple example to compile so I can move to the next step of actually calling one of the NNTP library functions? The library regrettably does not come with any sample apps that I have found. Also if someone knows of a better NNTP library that I should be using I am interested.

    DB:2.81:Trying To Use Jnntpe Nntp Library f7

    You don't put a jar file's directory in your classpath. Rather, you put the jar file itself.

    In unix format, it would be like this:
    javac -classpath .:someDir:aFile.jar:anotherFile.jar someFiles.java
