Authentication Error, server connect problem

Postby racky29 » Sun Jun 03, 2012 8:11 pm

ive installed and setup NewsFlash for the first time today, but cannot connect and get list of groups
the log appears as if Authentication error, something wrong with password
im using my ISP News Server VirginMedia
the server uses no ssl
and no User / pass is required

the server works fine with other clients, newsleecher, grabit, news file grabber, sabnzb, etc etc..
cannot get NewsFlash to work
ive tried another server XSusenet with ssl, and that connects ok

is this a serious bug or is there anything i can do to get this working
like change a file or registry setting

my system is, Windows Vista ultimate x86 sp2

connection Log:

[20:11:28:220] using SSL: 0

I'm sorry to tell you that there is an unfortunate bug in that version regarding servers that require no authentication.

This will be fixed in the next version.

today i installed 3.4.0b4
the bug previously mentioned is now fixed and working for me, so thank you
this is good news, i like this client, its got a fresh up to date feel to it

a couple of minor issues though
1. cannot see an option to auto pause the .Par2 files, most people dont want to download all those par2 unless needed
2. the settings window is opening too large for me, and slightly going off the bottom of screen, so i have to re-size it to click the ok/cancel
