Thread: port 119

  1. #1
    Hello guys,
    I was wondering if roadrunner is trying to capping all the traffic on port 119.
    Is there any way to maybe use another port except 119 ??
    When I try to change the port from 119 to another, my alt.binz does not work anymore.
    Any help please ?
    thank u

    Port 119 is the default port for newsgroup traffic for all providers I believe. It is solely up to the provider to offer additional ports. I do not have roadrunner so I cannot comment on if they offer any additional but I do know many other providers offer service on port 80. Maybe give that one a shot if you have not already.

    I have RR and I am in NYC I just started with the NG's so I know very little but I am getting the same speed as my BT dl and sometimes a little better ( 1.1-1.3 Mbs ) is that good or are they capping me too?

    I've noticed this too, marcolisi. I used to max out at ~5 connections, now they strictly limit you to 4 connections, before you uesd to be able to get more connections if you just kept retrying, and these 4 connections seem to be getting capped also.

    I just went ahead and bought a giganews account and am loving the incredible retention, I'd definitely do it if you have the money.

    Hi jmagar, reguarding giganews, how fast do u get in speed in kbps ??
    Is it stable the speed ?? I mean does the speed stay at for example 600-700 kbps for a long time , or often it goes down to 200 kbps??
    I also noticed this variation in speed while I use another usegroup like
    easynews.
    thank u

    HiDertale , do u mean 100 kbps or 1100kbps ??
    When I was going great, I was going at 700-800 kbps with 20 connections.
    Now just 4 connections and going 200kbps and rarely 600 kbps.

    I have rr at 10mega for downl and 512kbps in upload.
    I know that in january they will add
    20mega in downl and 1 mega in upload.
    I guess maybe they are having a lot of problems
    1)because they want people to move to 20
    2)because they are having problem in testing the new lines
    thank u guys

    More than likely, you aren't being capped.

    Using a free ISP news service is just a bit of a crap-shoot. You get what you pay for. :sage:

    What u said, would be valid if rr would always suck. Instead rr newsgroup was great untill 7 days ago.
    I was going at 800kbps with 20 connections.
    The problems came in latelly.
    By the way , now I am using easynews, and the speed is very unstable.
    These things can not be just explain with your ipothesys

    @marcolisi: I get a solid and steady 950ish kb/s @ 5 connections, doesn't ever dip unless I'm uploading something or the like.
