News articles inaccessible from 8am onwards


[link to this post]
 
I noticed yesterday, and again today, that I can't retrieve articles from either the UKFSN or Entanet news servers, I was able to do so before 8am this morning with no change of configuration, as I was last night during the evening.

I can get XOVER data, but if I try to retrieve the article the servers respond with the article ID and then deliver nothing further. I've tried looking using Wireshark, the traffic just stops dead.

Anyone else seeing this problem? It looks like a very vicious throttling of NNTP traffic during working hours. These are simple text groups, not binaries.

When using the UKFSN server from outside the Enta network, everything works fine. I have not tried the Enta news server in this way.

I cant really comment on ukfsn's server but news.enta.net appears to be working fine both from my place of work and my connection at home.

I have added a new group and downloaded all headers okay, articles are being displayed when highlighting them.

Brian,

I'm having a similar problem with both Giganews and UKFSN's news servers. I can download headers but If I try to download any articles I get a Connection Reset By Peer error. Bizarrely if I try to browse to Giganews' web site Chrome gives the following error: Error 101 (net::ERR_CONNECTION_RESET): The connection was reset. This is also happening on Astranews' site and a couple of others.

It's probably going to mean a call to Enta "support" but after my last run in with them I'd rather drill my finger nails as I'd find it less stressful.

Looks like I'm going to be asking for my MAC soon..

I'm trying to see if I can determine a pattern behind this. I think it might be specific to Enta's kit in interxion as everyone who has complained to me so far appears to be routing via that kit while those who are able to access usenet are routing via Telehouse.

Please can you run a tracepath or traceroute (or mtr) and post a copy of the route to news.ukfsn.org so I can see if the pattern holds true. Also state whether or not you're able to access usenet (to text servers!) during the day.

OK. Are you prepared to report your problem to Enta? I've just had a second reply telling me that there is nothing wrong with their systems and it must be just me.
