Hi dan.grindall and Welcome to Bleeping Computer. :thumbsup:

Please check out the New User Orientation section to help get familiarized with how the board works.

There is also a really good Tutorials section that has lots of useful information.

In the Tutorials you will find Introduction to RSS.



I have checked out Introduction to RSS - the issue isn't PEBKAC - the site pops 404 errors when I visit news topics in the RSS feeds.

Try disabling your software firewall to see if it is blocking this.

If so, I'm sure you can change the firewall settings.

JohnWho - please navigate to "RSS" on the top right of the site and click on the "RSS" icon for: Bleeping Computer News, then navigate to one of the news topics.

404 errors are http errors. If you receive one, it's not your firewall blocking a TCP connection - it's a web server telling you the the resource requested cannot be found.

Ah, I see -

of the top 4 items:

Bleeping Computer's News
20 Latest Tutorials
20 Latest Forum Topics
20 Forum Posts

I can not get to "Bleeping Computer's News" and I get that "Internet Explorer can not display this feed" error, too.


The other 3 items work fine for me.

I would agree - something amiss with the "Bleeping Computer's News" RSS feed page.

Edit to add - the "RSS" feed button in IE7 also will not get "news", but does get the Tuturials.
