I wonder if people here can reach www.porteus.org?  Site has been down for about a week, for me here on the west coast of the US -- but a few other users of the old Slax board say they can reach it.  Maybe only people in Europe?

One of the mods reported that they had 'changed DNS settings' -- but as I understand the web that means the problem is not fixable by a client?

Yeah, I cannot reach the address either. If it is a dns issue, then it is on their end.

I'm running OpenDNS and get this error:

The connection was interrupted

The connection to porteus.org was interrupted while the page was loading.

The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few
moments.
  

If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer's network
connection.
  

If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure
that Firefox is permitted to access the Web.



You can bypass DNS by using the direct IP --> http://67.18.207.212/

The site you are trying to view does not currently have a default page. It may be in the process of being upgraded and configured.
Please try this site again later. If you still experience the problem, try contacting the Web site administrator.
If you are the Web site administrator and feel you have received this message in error, please see "Enabling and Disabling Dynamic Content" in IIS Help.
To access IIS Help
  • Click Start, and then click Run.

  • In the Open text box, type inetmgr. IIS Manager appears.

  • From the Help menu, click Help Topics.

  • Click Internet Information Services.
It's not a DNS issue, I don't think. I can't even access it using a Dresden, Germany TOR access point. :(

Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience. ~C. S. Lewis

For those of you using https Everywhere, you'll need to disable it for the porteus.org site. SSL has been disabled on their server. Read more here --> http://old.slax.org/...&parentID=82945

Hello,

It seems some users are using out-dated DNS zone. This is why they can't access to porteus.org. If you are still getting this issue, just report it to us at info[at]porteus.org.

Thanks.

Well I use a Level3 dns (209.244.0.3 and 209.244.0.4) so how would I go about reporting this to your link above? Should I just email them with my dns info and explain that I cannot reach the site?

They appears up to date here. Maybe a local cache in your gateway or your operating system?

I can still access porteus.org easily as long as my https everywhere extension is disabled. I'm using OpenDNS, by the way.

Welcome hamza! :)

Downloaded, burned to CD, not getting ready to boot into CD so that I can install on thumb drive. Will stop in at the Porteus forums later.

Thanks! :)
