My news server recently switched to using nntpcache
for serving some of its groups. While downloading the
headers (and when I get to it, also the bodies) from
nntpcache-3.0.1, after a short time the download stops
and then (after a while) the following error is displayed:
sockstuff.cc:344: sock_read timeout reached (180s)
will try <server> again
nntp_group: trying again. 1
With other (binary) newsreaders, this problem does not
seem to occur.
I could reproduce this error by installing a local
nntpcache (but then again, this local nntpcache uses
the mentioned newsserver, so I cannot be sure at all)
I tried both nget-0.24 and nget-0.26.
PS: I really like nget! (And I miss it a lot now...)
