Selecting the channel source

There are many different ways to start the Channel Wizard that will guide you through the process of creating a new channel subscription:

 

The wizard starts with the following page:

There are two different types of channel:

Click the Server authentication button to set the authentication details if the server requires them. Only basic authentication is supported at present. You can also specify a SOAP request file that should be sent to the remote server if required and/or an XSLT transformation that should be applied to the downloaded feed.

Channels can also be set to expire after a certain amount of time. This is useful when subscribing to channels that you are not sure if you are going to like and want to keep. After the expiry date, Awasu will ask you if you want to keep the channel or get rid of it.
