You should remove these three parameters.
Moreover, your chaninacttime: or clienttimeout: values, I believe, are too low.
They must be >= 180 seconds.

You should fix everything there.  Run again inncheck and reload your newsfeeds file.

Then, is innfeed working better?
Otherwise, could you please post your newsfeeds file?
