Error messages

You no longer have an active package on your account. Therefore you also get the error message that the account has expired. Via My EasyUsenet you can place a new order on the current account. You can then immediately use our service again.
Your account has been blocked and therefore you can no longer connect to our servers. Please contact our helpdesk.
You have used all the credit of your block package. You can place a new order on your account via My easyusenet. After that you can use your account again.
Account sharing is not allowed. Since the account is active elsewhere, you cannot connect.
You are using too many connections. Reduce the number of connections to what is allowed with the subscription. If you are using multiple programs, you will have to divide the number of connections.
Your data entered is incorrect. Check your data or request it via My easyusenet on our website.
The file you are trying to download has been deleted due to copyright violation. Or it could be that the file has yet to be uploaded and is therefore not available yet.
The error code 502 is not an error code from easyusenet. But this means that you want to connect to another usenet platform. Check your settings and change them to those of easyusenet.
