RSS feeds & Google Reader

Discussion created by mweiss on Jan 20, 2009

Has anyone used Google Reader (or any RSS reader) successfully with the vCampus feeds?

 

I've tried subscribing to Discussion Hall RSS feeds, specific blog feeds, and several others with no luck (google reader and the Windows application "Feeddemon" both show errors (they basically can't download the XML of the feed).

 

One feed did work: http://vcampus.osisoft.com/blogs/MainFeed.aspx

 

I suspect this is due to the login requirements of the site. While I have set my browsers to remember my vCampus login (by checking remember me) but this doesn't help. I guess even web-based readers won't be able to pass-along the login cookie vCampus must be using (they must get the feeds xml on their back-end).

 

Any suggestions??
