It means that particular server has been scanned for all the articles in the transfer queue and has either downloaded them or they did not exist on the server.

Sometimes, NL does not handle certain errors well, and I've seen that message on servers that temporarily would not connect, but the articles existed. In that case, you need to close/open NL.

I have that problem at least once a day. No chance for me to do big downloads while i'm at work because NL just stops downloading after a hour or two due to this not so well handled errors. I only can restart NL when i'm back at home to get NL download again... really annoying

I have the same issue. If one of my servers gets certain types of errors no more downloading will happen on that server until you reload (not just re-connect) newsleecher.

[small rant]

Maybe just maybe the developer will take pity on us and fix this type of bug rater tha worry so much about new icons.


[end of small rant]

btw - this is still by FAR the best downloader out there. Thanks

Just to clarify, Transfers Scanned is not always associated to a bug. It is also used by secondary servers to show that they have scanned the queue and taken care of the parts they are responsible for.

Just to re-clarify

2 servers are happily downloading the same post. One gets an error (like 500 information not available) it stops scanning the que and goes to a status of Idle. Connecting and reconnecting servers does not get the Idle server to start back up. If you have only one server I guess you are SOL.

Stop newsleecher. Restart and now both servers are downloading again.

bug ?

LOL maybe we need a poll

Thank you scuba69. "(Transfers Scanned) WTF does that mean in the active status window?" doesn't exactly say if there is a lack of understanding on the user's part or if a problem occurred with NL. (If that were the case then this should have been posted in the Bug Reports Forum.)

At any rate, people are making assumptions. Shmoes needs to be more specific when asking questions.

ok well just to clarify..

it was a reaction on my part, thinking that my transfer was being scanned by the isp server. I understand the scan function now. it's all good.

I have done this several times with the same problem. The files in the queue are only being downloaded from one out of the three servers that I have. I know the files are there because I can access them using my Grabit. Any other sugguestions?

The problem with me was not with NL, but with my server. I have COX which is not 100% msgid compliant.

Make sure your news provider is not on the incompatible list. Check my sig for the appropriate link.
