There are not any specific requirements or settings about Rss feed consuming. For instance the following very basic code illustrates how you can consume the Rss feeds from Sitefinity's blog
DataSet ds =
GridView grid =
grid.DataSource = ds.Tables;
Most probably you have denied the request to the rss feed or you have applied some other IIS restrictions.
