XFOR: NNTP: Feed Postings Rejected Due to Missing Header

Article ID: 173931

  • Microsoft Commercial Internet System 1.0 Service Pack 2

This article was previously published under Q173931


The Internet News Service (INS) may fail to post feeds to hub net news servers such as UUNET.


Hub net news servers, such as UUNET, now reject post feeds that do not include the NNTP-Posting-Host header. INS 1.0 does not include the NNTP-Posting-Host header.


Apply the fix referenced below, or wait for the next Service Pack. With the fix applied, the Nntpsvc.dll file is modified to include the NNTP-Posting-Host header. After you apply the fix, edit the following registry value to enable the NNTP-Posting-Host header:


   Type: Reg_DWORD
   Values: 0, 1

NOTE: Must be set to 1 to force the server to generate NNTP Posting Host headers.


Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in Microsoft Commercial Internet System version 1.0.

A supported fix is now available, but has not been not fully regression tested and should be applied only to systems experiencing this specific problem. Unless you are severely impacted by this specific problem, Microsoft recommends that you wait for the next Service Pack that contains this fix. Contact Microsoft Technical Support for more information.
