[FETCH NEWS] Access socket problem

Using the Sony PRS 505 on Windows 7.

Using Fetch News from the Irish Times,CNN,The Guardian I get this error for each feed.

Failed Feed: X(Whatever the feed is)

"An attempt was made to access a socket in a way forbidden by its access permission"

Have these sites taken action against Calibre because people are gettng the content without generating ad revenue, or is it a simple networking switch that I need to set.

I must state that this is the first time I have attempted to fetch news.
Regards,
Ed

Seems more likely to be a problem on your side I think. Could it be a problem with firewall or incompatibility between Windows 7 and Calibre?

news download works fine on windows 7. Likely some permissions issue with your install. Unfortunately, I dont have win 7 so I can't really help.
