The Forum is IIS 5.x & 6.0 General the problems are with NTTP and UseNet News Readers with Windows and IIS Server.
The IIS Forums normally deal with the settings and configuration just for IIS Server.
I will assume your problems are with IIS 7 Server and having the NTTP Server Runnings and transfering old messages.
This has worked before on IIS 6.0 Server and Windows 2003 and with "Unix" "Linux" using the server to import or export
and do the managment and conversion of Unix to Dos Formatting.
You need to fill in the missing pieces for the "Unix" "Linux" and Windows
parts and the News Reader and Server
I or some of the other Memers with try and help.

HI, my problems are with iis 6 and iis NNTP.
you are correct in that i have some old usenet archives from a unx box, i clicked onto the fact that i may need to change the line endings, this was done and still the files would not be picked up. I then had issues with the date, the files were old, the
machine datetime was current, old files wouldnt import, change the machine date time, ignore windows warnings and my sample files would import. The problem i found was that the files would not import with this header line
it seems to be that i have to strip that line for the 1000's of files i have, annoying, perhaps there is a setting that allows this or do i have to manually edit alll the files?
The last thing i found was for windows to pick up thefiles i have to add a crlf(.)Crlf to the end of each file. id dont understand why is this something that is required in the format? ( getting the documented supported formats would be so helpful )
so currently the header sample i can import is ( ignore the spacing, in my text file they are all on seperate lines with no spaces)

12 lines of text here
I guess what i want to confirm is what are the valid Header Items that windows version of nntp can import,
The documents i want to import also include to following headers, which i believe work on, but i havent tested alot.
Content-Type: Text/Plain; charset=US-ASCII
X-Newsreader: WinVN 0.99.9 (Released Version) (x86 32bit)

Im very interested in your comment that you said it has worked with iis6 and w2k3 with unix/linux files to import.. thats exactly what im trying to do so if you have further details i would very much like to hear about them. or pointers to where i might
be able to search on that.. so far my search has turned up nothing
