Cam i ask a email to be left with account requests, just sometimes i miss them, if you don't get your account immediately id doesn't mean it has been refused, just likley i haven't seen it. If you leave a email i will always send you a confirmation email (and it lets me sort any problems, like illegal characters in usernames / passwords)

Server will be on and off for a few hours, replacing our router with a airport extreme, also gotta reconfigure our network (so the "backbone" is gigabit, rather than 100megabit)

Thanks nil0bject Wink merry Christmas to you and your family too

And all good things must come to a end... wonder if anyone can spot where freelech started? http://max1zzz.co.uk/pic_host/data_graph_.png

(if you have a transfer running it will finish at full speed, however anything else you have queued will download at normal speed)

Hey All, Hope you had a good Christmas and are having a good new year Wink

I am looking for a few regular users who are willing to help me out, need some people to help me test a new piece of ftp server software, i will be posting the normal connection details here, but also need some people with accounts to test (and if you have a account and are willing to help, email me or drop a message in my dropbox, as your account will need to be specially set up)

Thanks, max1zzz

OK, Here is the testing FTP Server (has a 5 connection limit atm, due to the fact it is in trial mode)

FTP:
Address: max1zzz.co.uk:55
Port: 55 (Hence 55 on address)
User: mg / mr
Pass: mg1 / mr1 (passwords must be 3 characters or more in this software)

HTTP:
Address: max1zzz.co.uk:9090
Port: 9090 (hence 9090 on address)
User: mg / mr
Pass: mg1 / mr1 (passwords must be 3 characters or more in this software)

If you want to use your account on this, email me (or drop a message in my dropbox) and i will setup your account using the same details as you use for the primary server

I used the mg account.
Seems to be very responsive, even to user cancellations.
I'm downing at about 20k/s.
Are you planning on using this server instead of the old one? Or this has another purpose? getting ready for ipv6?

yes, this will (proabley) replace tho old one
The old one is a awesome piece of software, but it has one drawback (which i touched on before) if you want me to explain email me or pop on wired and i'll explain exactly what the problem is

Notice of downtime-
Expect some extended downtime (perhaps 24hours or more) this weekend, replacing the ups with a better one (which will be seen by the server, allowing auto shutdown) (picked up a free apc smart ups 1500, batts look good aswell, well i got two ups's, but one is refusing to start) old one will be moved and will power a new nas box i built and will also keep the switch up in outages (but not the modem).

Also need to sort out the backup drive (should just need to be reformatted and have the data moved back on it) for safety reasons, the server needs to be offline while i do this.

Also gotta reconfigure the network somewhat, so i got lots of work to do (most i have needed to do since moving to the xserve)

Hi Max, isn't ProFTPD good enough for your server ?
It's an easy replacement for the built-in FTPD.

well, i used to run of pureFTPD, however it always had security flaws i couln't seem to patch up.
But saying that, i never really looked into proFTPD (but as i understand the two are related) so i'll have a look into it

Ok... Decided to just take the plunge and buy CrushFTP (just sold a couple of xbox's so had some money)

I expect migration to take a few hours, in this time the mg and mr accounts will be active, however user accounts won't be untill it is finished

Bah, ran into a bug in the software... (for some reason the software is takeing the speed limit on the mg account as for all connections on that account, and not as for each transfer, even though their customer support insists it should)

Anyway i have been thinking of a possibly better way, crushFTP will allow for self registration, so what i could do is have that, then everyone gets their own account as such (but with the same limits as the mg one) and your account gets upgraded when you upload

So if everyone is happy with that i will do that

Ok, user accounts migrated, we should be good to go.

And the public account should give you averages or around 40kb/s, as what crush dose is rather than pushing data out at a constant speed it will vary but will keep the avarage at the speed limit (it also means that ftp downloads my appear jumpy, but that is just the server keeping the avarage speed at the right rate

I will also be adding self registration, so if you have problems with the mg one you can just register your own account (which will have the same restriction as the mg one) (and if you upload your account will get upgraded)

Ok, i recommend all regular users without a account sign up here:
http://max1zzz.co.uk:8000/?u=register&p=register&path=/WebInterface/jQue...

Since the mg account still dosen't seem to be doing the speed limit right.
By signing up here you will essentially have your own speed limit (as you have your own account) therefor your speed won't be affected by others.

These accounts will have the same limits as the mg account untill you upload (at which point drop a message in the accounts db, or email me and i will upgrade your account)

ok, just cleared a 2 month backlog of self registered accounts, if you created one and it hasn't worked it should now.

i did intend to have emails sent out when the accounts have been activated but most mail services will reject the emails as they come from a residential address. looking into what it would cost to get a mail relay service, isn't looking too expensive.

your site doesnt work.. on any of the computers in my house.. using multiple different operating systems + clients.. every download cuts out after 64k of info transfered.... i have no problem seeing the directory listing however..

You know, if you don't like it your spend the £400+ and the large chunk of your time to host it yourself.

some people will always get problems downloading, there is often nothing i can do about it.

I suspect your problem is due to the sometimes erratic nature of how crush ftp enforces the sped limit. some clients just don't like it.

If you had contacted me first before going of on one about how the site dosen't work atall i might have made special arrangements for you to get the file.

If you really believe there is a problem email me your client's session transcript and your ip address and i can look into it.

mike; sorry but, its pretty freaking frusrtating when what u need it on your screen and u cant get it to download.. i tried downloaded the file for 8 hours..over web.. ftp clients. on about 8 differnet computers tha ti have using different clients and it still doesnt work.. i have put considerable effort into getting this mdd together, i have modified it to be quiet as a mouse i have added aditional fans.. i have done so much to make this possible u have no idea.. all im trying to do is get os9 on my mdd instead of os x.. and i need very much these restore cds .. good grief man.. what i said wasnt entirely vulgar... i was expressing my well earned frustration. and it would seem that the configuration of this ftp is not entirely correct there are some PROBLEMS with the setup + configuration of his ftp.
having run an ftp all the way back to 1992 this is something i can safely + adamantly assert.. however he has set this up... if multiple people are expressing problems.. ten there most definately is a problem with how hes configured it.. because the site is 100% useless to me. im unable to download ANY FILE NO MATTER HOW LARGE past 64kb the transfer appears to start fine and then slows to a halt + fails.

so give me your session transcripts and your ip. without that i have no means of investigating the problem.

Look maybe i overreacted, but you need to appreciate my position here the way you put it read almost like a accusation to me. It may be frustrating i am not doing anything to stop it working. As far as i am aware there are no problems, when i test it it works fine.

I haven't had anyone with connection problems like yours for a long time. but i will do everything i can to get it working for you.

May i also suggest you drop in on wired or kdx in some instances they can work better than http or fttp (i won't promise you that i will make any difference though)

I can recommend Wired as a more modern approach to 'file communication' though KDX has it's rustic charm…

lol im reading this thread on 68kmla now and i see u guys are on about the same exact things i have been .. LOL .. too bad theres no company that just makes these things for us poor people eh? to save us the trouble of all this bullshit just to be able to use 10 year old computers lol

did u guys see my other thread that i started re: os9 raid?? im looking for ACARD 6890M similar options... that will let me use Sata drives in raid0 or raid1 under OS9.. this may be a stretch tho as i see alot of u struggling with flashing just to achieve the basic sata150 ports minus raid on 66mhz wide pci...
