    Exclamation RSS Reader not reading an ashx feed


    Hi,

    I'm trying to get an RSS Reader to read a feed from a US Navy site located here:
    404 - File or directory not found.

    The RSS Feed is supposed to be this: 404 - File or directory not found.

    My reader can not read the .ashx extension. How do i get this to pull-in and be readable as an XML file?

    Our site is on Joomla (php/xml) so not sure how to make this work. The feed is automated so manually converting this file isn't a good option.

    Maybe I'm missing something simple....

    Please advise.

    Thanks,
    Ryan.

    As your post shows, both of those links 404. Are you sure that's not the problem? Because the extension is generally meaningless - anything that doesn't allow simply it because the extension is ".ashx" is stupid.

    Let's try that link again -> Naval Sea Systems Command > Home > Warfare Centers > NSWC Crane

    If you scroll to the bottom you'll see the RSS feed icon. I've even tried to get this feed to pull into outlook and its telling me its not valid.


    Hope that helps.

    Ryan.
