SpotNet error messages/troubleshooting view log files

This is an overview of known errors in SpotNet. Like Spotnet can’t connect. The maximum number of connections has been reached. In Spotnet I get the message “Server Timout”. I can’t download anything with SpotNet. I get the message “Error while starting SABnzdb: view the logfile”.

SpotNet kan geen verbinding maken, maximaal aantal verbindingen is bereikt.SpotNet cannot connect, maximum number of connections has been reached

You make more connections to your Usenet provider. Then it’s okay. Check how many you can make. And then see how many you have in SpotNet. You can adjust this in SpotNet. By performing the following.

Go to Bewerken (edit) and then Provider…

And then you have option Verbindingen.(connections)

Here you can adjust the number.

4 connections is often more than enough. If you are using a second Usenet program. Or you can share your account with someone else. Then it can also be because of this.

SpotNet is slow.

You can try the following. In SpotNet, go to Bewerken Edit and then InstellingenSettings.

Then choose Externe black/whitelist … External black/whitelist. And uncheck Gebruik externe CSV black/whitelist. … And uncheck Use external CSV black/whitelist.

Restart SpotNet and try again. This has nothing to do with slow downloads.

In SpotNet, I get the message “Server Timout” how do I fix this?

The solution to this. Can be quite simple. Instead of providing the address of your news server, try to enter the IP address of your news server. You can get the IP address. In the following way. Press the “Windows” key (key with Windows logo also called the flag) + the letter “R” key. Now an input field will appear. Type here in CMD. And press Enter key. Now an old-fashioned dos screen is emerging. And type here in “Ping newserver address” as example see “Ping reader2.newsxs.nl”.

When I start SpotNet I start the error message “attempt to write a readonly database”

Go to the following folder c:\programdata\spotnet ( can be a hidden folder) Right mouse click on the folder. And then properties. Check here if reading alone is not on (should not be a cross)
Then go in the folder folder. And then you see a file with the extension “.db”. Do a Right Mouse click. And then properties. And also check here whether not only reading is on.

Can’t download anything with Spotnet get the message “Error while starting SABnzdb: view the logfile”

You get this error message because SABnzbd is built into Spotnet. However, that is an old version of SABnzbd. And he doesn’t get along well with the local host file. You can check this by doing the following.

Click Start. Click Run. type “%systemroot% \system32\drivers\etc”.

And then click OK. Here’s a file called hosts.

Back this up. Double click the hosts file. And choose the Notepad program. To open the file.

For Windows XP or Windows 2003, only the following line “127.0.0.1 localhost” should be present. So there should be no # sign.

For Windows Vista or Windows 2008 server, only the following two lines should have a no # sign.

127.0.0.1 localhost
::1 localhost

With Windows 7, only a # character should have. Now there are program that use the hosts file that can no longer function as a result. This is especially common in games that use the antibot/cheat system GameGaurd (for example, Aion: The Tower of Eternity, Flyff, GunBound, and Lineage II)

What you can do is install SABnzbd yourself. And then link Spotnet to SABnzbd. I think this is so convenient. Because then you can also link SickBeard or SickRage to your SABnzbd, for example. And as a result, you have not installed SABnzbd several times. Also, the advantage of this is. That you can just update SABnzbd and not fall behind.

Everything downloaded by SpotNet disappears into the trash

Close the Prgramma SpotNet. Go to the following folder “C:\ProgramData\Spotnet” then open the settings file.xml Open this file with Notepad. Then find the following line on < RemoveDownloads > True < /RemoveDownloads. > Then adjust this to < RemoveDownloads > false < > /RemoveDownloads. Save the file. And try again.

Get the error message in SpotNet “key is not valid for use in specified state”

You may be able to resolve this by deleting the rsa file. Be the first to close SpotNet For the location of the rsa file see below:

Windows XP
C:\Documents and Settings\”username”\Application Data\Microsoft\Crypto\RSA\”usage code”\”code”.

Vista & Windows 7

C:\Users\”Username”\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Crypto\RSA
The first line says “Spotnet User Key”.

Unable to retrieve new headers in SpotNet

This often has to do with your news server provider (header server) You can’t do anything about this yourself. Try again at a later date. And visit the website of your news server provider. You may be able to find more information about a malfunction there.

Spots are missing from SpotNet

There’s nothing you can do about this either. This often has to do with your news server provider (header server). Try again at a later date. And visit the website of your news server provider. Maybe you can find more information there if there’s a malfunction.

Unable to spot, get the message “Unable to reach the server. Try again later.”

Open the settings file.xml. This can be found in “C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Local Application Data\Spotnet..” Look up the following”<ExternalSigning>True</ExternalSigning>”adjust this to “<ExternalSigning>False</ExternalSigning>”. This causes the signing server to be skipped. If this doesn’t work. Check your usenet provider’s site to see if there is currently no outage.
