Search failed (6) License eligibility period has expired?

03 Oct 23: One server has been relocated, the server currently doesn't have a public IP address in the meantime. I wrote some additional tunnel code running separately to handle this. When the server is engaged the connection is 5600+ days uniform (since around 24 July 2008). In the unlikely case I disengaged the server because of some problem the retention is 1200-3800 days depending on newsgroup. If you experience any issue please let me know.

29 Nov 23: Because of encrypted and obfuscated posts flood mass posted by a few nzb indexing websites using usenet servers as private storage for their members to download the posts - the situation with the content is pretty chaotic since their purpose is to post in such a way, so users must use their website exclusively, when the website disappears - the encrypted posts just eat usenet providers' hard disk space uselessly. If you can't find something specific please let me know at alexbirj at gmail dot com what exactly you can't find for me to check how it is possible to retain the posts. Non-obfuscated posts shouldn't be affected at all, let me know if you notice anything missing.

29 Nov 23: The search protocol had to be upgraded to extend 3 byte (16M+) limit on the server side for number of sets per instance, so at least the version 5.8.3 is needed to access it, otherwise should be no any difference.

21 Jun 24: The search protocol had to be upgraded again to be able to properly process the trial version searches on the tunneled server (see the first note above).

My license renewed about two weeks ago, but the search server is telling me I'm out of bounds.

It should work now.

I switched temporariliy to old computers because of new server relocation, they were out of sync.

I didn't plan to use them, just on another new server motherboard and maybe more was fried when attempting to upgrade CPU.

My license renewed last month, but now I get this message: Search failed (12) Your license eligibility period has ended. Purchasing a new license is needed to regain search service access.

Check now, I've just engaged the second new server, it was down for a month for parts replacement, I now resynchronized all servers manually.

Thanks for notifying me fast.
