error: news.gmane.org: received bogus greeting (400):... try later

Leafnode gives this from time to time.  I don't recall Pan ever giving 
such an error, but maybe it was silent.  I've read that this could be 
IPv6 related, but thought I'd ask here to clarify first.

Maybe it just means, literally, that gmane is busy and to try later?

thanks,

Thufir

If the load is high, you might be rejected by INN - it even says what
the load is in the message. I have had that happen to me a couple of
times over the last weeks.

Yes, it's very annoying that Gmane is sometimes unusable for hours at a
time because there's a load spike. Like today.

Maybe it will light a fire under Reticule¹? Or maybe "just" under the
SSDs²?

I never knew about Reticule, very informative article.  I read about
the new server back in March, was it put into service?  I don't
remember seeing any load messages during March, but now in April I
have seen it twice.

No, not yet.  One of these weekends...

Yes.  AFAIK gmane's servers have a threshold load level at which they 
start turning away users.  They seem to have been hitting that sometimes 
recently, according to reports.

AFAIK pan sends a stay-alive to the server periodically, so once 
connected you should stay connected for awhile, even if idle.  But 
leafnode, being a news server, will be dropping the connection when it's 
idle and trying again when it's time to check again (tho there may be a 
config option for that, I don't know leafnode).  So you'll get the error 
more often because you'll be trying to get a new connection more often.

I've not turned on IPv6 here at all, so don't have much to say about it.  
Someday I'll have to learn it and turn it on for my system...

Since gmane doesn't have an IPv6 address this won't have any effect.
