@netfreak: Any way for an FTP?

 

Sorry, one of my early linux machines was hacked back in 1999/2000 due to FTP and I have not run it since.

 

That seems like a poor reason. I'm sure there's holes in Hotline and KDX that simply haven't been discovered due to their relative obscurity.

 

I had a buffer overflow in wu-ftpd. Root access, box starting port scanning and got canned by my ISP. FTP serves no purpose for me.

 

Regarding the original question, I may consider some other protocols for the text archive but all of the antique software and whatnot I want to keep on Hotline/KDX only so I can keep an eye on who accesses it.

Yay! A Blazing 40 KB/s! MUCH better than the other KDX server!

 

Hotline per user limit is 40k/sec. Global limit on the KDX server is 250k/sec. I might adjust it at some point but I'm not a fan of some of the auto downloaders on the Hotline protocol.

Apparently I am arriving in the middle of a long conversation. Are "we" back up? Could somebody PM me the details? I picked up an old LC from ebay, and it had some interesting old MIDI software that runs in system 6.0.7. I thought others might be interested...

I'm finding that out. Why do my downloads start at 50-70k/s but steadily dwindle down to 2k/s after a few minutes?

 

This also happens on the KDX server. The download speed quickly increases to 200 kb/s, the specified limit. It then drops gradually to below 10 kb/s. :-/

Because the server is likely inside of someone's house.

 

The speed of the Hotline/KDX is impacted by the surges of web traffic my server gets. I'm constantly hitting my maximum bandwidth as I am on a budget connection with a Cogent upstream. Since I make little to no money running it, I can't afford the connection it really needs.

 

And no, it is not in my house. Here is a picture:

So the server is in the red circle, or is it THE red circle?

I think the answer to that question is rather obvious. Anyway, some good news. I emailed netfreak and probably next month I'll be sending him a hard drive, which he will copy the 'downloads' folder to from the server, and then that hard drive will be sent back to me. Yes, long live preterhuman! :b&w:

Will that go to MacHut and be accessible with FTP, or even better, HTTP? If so that'd be amazing.

*possibly*. But do remember that Mac Hut is limited to 30 KB/s total for all connected users, so it won't be that amazing. ;)

My internet connection at the apartment has a 1.5 Mbps upload (192 KB/sec).

 

If I had some kind of bootstrap of files I would be willing to host a server. Maybe I'll even make a project of it - I've got a Quadra 950 doing nothing right now, and it's got a RAID of 4x9 GB SCSI drives, on a SCSI card. I can pop a bunch of RAM in there and have a rockin' 68K Hotline server.

yep, i might get the mirroring set up even sooner than I thought. I gotta skip a day of work pretty soon for some appointments so I'd have time to grab the hard drive from the datacenter, mirror it at home, then return it (long story, can't do the mirror at the datacenter).

 

in regards to that picture, the datacenter is in that building obviously haha

Really? I couldn't find any indication that Always On systems involves itself in anything other than UPS devices.

 

Correct. It was easier putting the picture up on the web server at work. The datacenter is Rackster

Indeed. Well, we all thank you for having the server. I myself have nabbed quite a few files from it.

 

No problem. The whole reason I started running the server was for text files and getting all the rare and old software just sort of happened from running the Hotline server all these years.

Just a heads up files on my server will be offline for a while today as I do this at my house:

 

nfs:/mnt/usb_hd/elitep/server# tar czf /nfs/drive4/preterhuman_downloads.tar.gz downloads

 

If it finishes before the datacenter staff leave, then I'll have it all back online. Otherwise it'll be sometime tomorrow around noon.

Will that tar.gz file be online tomorrow too? :p

I thought about doing that but since I have to make the archive at my house onto my home file server, I'd have no way to get it back to the datacenter as the server file drive is quite full. Some weird hardware problem prevents more than one USB hard drive to be plugged into the server, and the files drive is already taking up that spot.

The good news:

 

-rw-r--r--  1 netfreak netfreak 116617937538 2009-08-01 04:56 preterhuman_downloads.tar.gz

 

 

The bad news:

 

I can't take the drive back to the datacenter until staff are back there tuesday so the server will have no files for a few days.
