      Newsgroup speed issue (Giganews)

      Has anyone experienced slower speeds in the last couple of days?

      I usually max out my line at 1.4Mb\sec.

      However for the last three nights it's been around the 700Kb\s.

      I have checked Newsleecher and I don't have the speed limit set

      Edit: I am using their SSL Service on port 563.

      I will try and not use SSL tonight to see if that improves things.

      Currently downloading from GN at a touch over 12Mbps. Using news-europe on SSL port 443 with 4 connections.

      Which version of Newsleecher? There's been a recent fix:

      Oct 29, 2008, @943.beats
      NewsLeecher v3.95 Beta 2 has just been released.

      Note that this beta fixes a rather serious performance degrading bug which was introduced in the previous beta release.

      Re: Newsgroup speed issue (Giganews)

      Hi,

      I am using 3.95 Beta 2.

      I've tried the different server farms, disabling SSL. Tried SSL ports 443 & 563.

      No difference. I max out now at 900Kb a sec I used to get 1.6Mb

      I may try the non beta to see if that makes a difference.
