As I said, it has changed in Syracuse University's DNS system. But no one has forced the new IP on lucky (yet); lucky still asks for and gets the old IP. Only problem (as you know), you can no longer look up lucky.syr.edu and get the old address. I am quite afraid that along with the new address will come the end of certain privileges that I have enjoyed since the beginning ... (1) running the FTP server, (2) running a mail server which provides mailing lists that are crucial to my department, and (3) peer-to-peer VPN and RD, on which my work relies heavily.Yup. 22.214.171.124 works from here. My ISP, however, tells meCode:
~\Work> echo %@ipname[126.96.36.199] 11004 (%?=1, %_?=0) ~\Work> echo %@ipname[188.8.131.52] lucky.syr.edu (%?=1, %_?=0)
Having thought a bit about retirement lately, I installed the FTP server at home. My RoadRunner IP address hasn't changed in over 2 years. Just for kicks, give this a try: ftp://vefatica.netI wish you luck when the corporate IT folks get to you. For now, I'll put the ...36 address into my hosts file.
Yes. The network folks are involved in a big project and didn't want to handle my request that long-standing privileges be continued. That's tabled at least until fall.Looks like Syracuse IT has fixed the DNS record.
Good, and interesting. You have the IPv6 address and I didn't do anything with IPv6 to the home server.That works for me.
