 |Hm ... I try exactly like you , but it stop ... here:
 |<WIN> 18:45 (5152) senonblockingSocket <15,1> =0
 |19:19:00.82 (5152) 0+0: AcceptByMain: Timeout <Children=0, timeout=15>

I did copy & paste the line on my Win2K machine and got like this:
 05/01 13:00:54.26 [756] 0+0: --INITIALIZATION DONE: 8.11.3 on WindowsNT--
 (WIN) 00:54 [756] setNonblockingSocket(15,1)=0
 05/01 13:01:09.28 [756] 0+0: AcceptByMain: TIMEOUT(children=0, timeout=15)

This is very usual log output from DeleGate right after it has started
and is waiting a request from a client.
It stays stopped until a request will come from a client, of course.

 |It looks that delegate need some .dll or something .ocx ... wherever
 |...which is not present under win 2000 ...
 |Any idea ?

Why do you think so?  As long as I know, it runs commonly on any Win32
architecture, especially on WinNT series.

 |Hmm.  So I examined the active file of the newsgroup "" at
 |DGROOT/etc/news/groups/ (DGROOT is "C:/Program Files/DeleGate"
 |by default) It was like this:
 |00000 00000 0 X C:/Program Files/DeleGate/cache/nntp/-.-/spool/test/group
 |Both the drive symbol ":" and the space character is not cared.

By the way, I coped with this ":" and SPACE problem in 9.0.1-ALPHA,
which is distributed at
You don't need edit a group file manually with this version and later.
