IMPORTANT! The server may go down soon - possibly permanently. Please read the latest post in Announcements and News

FTP is broken. I strongly advise all users using my server for their web site to make alternative arrangements.

Outgoing mail is disabled because of the malware on the server. No new forum registrations are currently possible, and mail to the forum administrator will not work.

Please read the posts in the Announcements section about the current status of Cumulus development now that I have retired

It’s optional. An option we won’t be taking.

Re: Site going down.

Should have power tomorrow, assuming a mooring is available. Will try to find time to have another look at the server. Dinner booked at a Japanese restaurant, a first for both of us.

Re: Site going down.

Updating of dayfile.txt is unrelated to being able to connect to the internet, it should have updated at midnight with an entry for the 16th. I suppose it is possible that a problem with ftp could cause problems elsewhere in Cumulus, but I don’t remember it being a problem before. It’s probably wort...

Re: No data from console to Cumulus MX

It’s just sending back the same six characters regardless of the command Cumulus sends.

<lf> <cr> OK <lf> <cr>

The response OK is part of the protocol, but I can’t remember exactly when it’s used. It’s not what Cumulus is expecting.

Re: No data from console to Cumulus MX

I can't look at this in detail right now as I am on holiday, but it looks like it's having trouble communicating with the console. You're not trying to run any other software with the station at the same time, are you?

Re: Site going down.

The spam has started again. I have blocked outgoing traffic on port 25 and will investigate when I get home, I've had enough of this for now. I strongly advise anyone whose web site is on this server to start making alternative arrangements. I will refund any payments made, pro-rata, on request to s...

Re: Site going down.

I created a dummy certificate when I enabled secure ftp on the server when testing the code I added to Cumulus MX. Filezilla will try to use secure ftp in preference and will get the dummy certificate. I suppose I should really disable secure ftp on the server, I get asked about this regularly. The ...

Re: Site going down.

I believe the malware is no more, although there is still a slight oddity to be explained, but this apparently is not doing any harm. Hetzner are going to review after two days. After which I will re-enable the outgoing smtp port so that mail from the forum will start working again, and hopefully th...
