Cannot download searched items

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).

Cannot download searched items

Post by aberly »

I recently had to reset my hard disk to factory condition. I reinstalled UE, but using the latest version. I didn't have the old database, so I set up the servers by hand. I use two different services. They both work. I can pull headers, view messages, and download attachments.

But I cannot download attachments I find using the search service, even though I could do this before I reinstalled UE. I get the error message that I attached here as a screen capture.

I tried manually adding the newsgroup the search service had found, and it still didn't work. So I imported all headers for that group, and finally I got it to work. But I never had to do this extra step before. And having to do it now greatly reduces the value of the search service, because now I have to pull thousands of headers just to see one message I found using the search.

How can I fix this?

In the newsgroups tab of the view menu->workspace right click on the Import group and invoke advanced->attach all servers.
