Can't access updated plugins at ftp://lucky.syr.edu/4plugins/

This is probably an issue for Vince Fatica.

I recently updated Tcmd to V19.10.51 from V19.00.28. When starting, Tcmd/TCC now report

TCC: (Sys) The specified procedure could not be found.
"C:\bin\jpsoft\tcmd\PlugIns\4console.dll"
TCC: (Sys) The specified procedure could not be found.
"C:\bin\jpsoft\tcmd\PlugIns\4utils.dll"
TCC: (Sys) The specified procedure could not be found.
"C:\bin\jpsoft\tcmd\PlugIns\sysutils.dll"

I have noted Rex's announcement of changes in Build 31. When I attempt to download updates via ftp links on the plugins page, I get a connection timeout. This is the second time I have tried to do this, both times on weekends (in case that is significant). Also, I am in Australia (again, in case that is significant).

Thank you for any assistance.
John

Sorry about that!

lucky.syr.edu was getting beat up by hackers in Asia so I installed some firewall rules blocking many IPs managed by APNIC. If you post an IP address or range of addresses, I'll disable the appropriate rule.

Hi Vince

Thought something like that might be the case, vaguely remember you discussing it with someone from eastern Europe a few years ago.

My current IP is 110.143.141.253. As my provider is a large Telco in Australia, you may be able to determine a range from that individual IP.

Thanks,
John

P.S., It's hard to block IPs selectively. Here's just part of 110.*.*.*
Code:
110.93.112.0 - 110.93.191.255 KR
110.93.192.0 - 110.93.255.255 PK
110.94.0.0 - 110.127.255.255 CN
110.128.0.0 - 110.135.255.255 JP
110.136.0.0 - 110.139.255.255 ID
110.140.0.0 - 110.151.255.255 AU
110.152.0.0 - 110.157.255.255 CN
110.158.0.0 - 110.158.255.255 JP
110.159.0.0 - 110.159.255.255 MY

Same problem when I'm at the office. IP 216.15.121.174.
Hi, Dave.

There's a lot of good stuff in the 216 class A network (Google, Amazon, ...). It's not blocked by either my FTP server or by my firewall. My best guess is a firewall on your end, possibly a restriction imposed by your employer.

My FTP logs go back a year ... long before I implemented any firewall rules. They show no connections from anyone in 216.15.*.*.

My mistake. There are lots of connections from your address, the most recent being on June 16.

But all the other things I said seem to be true. It's not blocked. I left a sniffer going, targeting 216.15. It'll see stuff before the server or the firewall. Please try again, today or tomorrow.

Edit: When you do, note the exact time.

I looked at firefox/google 'ip address' and got 121.208.242.48. However, the ipconfig.exe returns an ip6 address.

Vince, I'll try it again on Wednesday (next time I'm there). Meanwhile, I've noticed that I can't connect from home, either. My home IP address is not static, but it should stay in the 104.153.*.* range.
It's been 104.153.40.9 for a couple of months.

Can'/t access it either: ipconfig gives:

That doesn't help. 192.168.*.* are non-routable IPs ... that specific IP was, no doubt, given to your computer by a router or modem. For me to investigate, I'll need the IP address of the router/modem ... the address your router/modem gets from your ISP ... the IP address that the outside world sees.

I have no personal experience with routers, but I know they typically act as firewalls.

How would I get that information? I am on RR/TWC......

Hmmm! Lucky's IP has changed. I have to look into that?

Well no; lucky's IP hasn't changed. It's 128.230.13.36 (as it has always been).
Code:
v:\> echo %_winname
LUCKY

v:\> echo %_ip
128.230.13.36
My employer's DNS must be screwed up.

What's your point?

Try ftp://128.230.13.36
