Abstract: Use these suggestions to get the most out of our discussion forums
Read this article for information on using our discussion forums, and for configuring your forum client.
Feel free to join the conversations at https://forums.embarcadero.com or news://forums.embarcadero.com.
We have chosen Jive as our new discussion forums server for several reasons:
Feedback is welcome here or on the Developer Network Website forum.
https://forums.embarcadero.com is the main page URL for the browser-based discussion forums.
news://forums.embarcadero.com will give you access to all public groups defined on the server. These correspond to the browser-based discussion forums. Messages posted via nntp are visible via the browser client, and vice versa.
Note! Any user may choose to login with an SSL connection. The SSL communication is slightly slower due to encryption/decryption of the NNTP packets, but most users won't notice the performance difference. This is a more secure connection for your account login information.
You can use the news://forums.embarcadero.com hyperlink, but you will need to customize your account settings as described above to get access to all your private groups, and to all public groups. There is no need for a second account to participate in public group discussions.
Note: XanaNews 188.8.131.52 has added support for some of our custom NNTP headers. Those of you who use XanaNews may want to upgrade.
You should now be able to retrieve your newsgroup list, subscribe, and start joining the discussion in the public groups.
You should now be able to retrieve your newsgroup list, subscribe, and start joining the discussion in both the private and public groups.
Note! There are no private groups available at this time, other than one used for internal testing.
