Agony IPF is a master. Agony ADF is a copy.

I will soon be part of a colloque at the french National Library. I will plaid about preservation and the fact that the current copyright laws are a poison regarding preservation.

The ideal thing would be that the right holders kept their rights, money making forbidden on retro software, but allowing people to get the software with having the guillotine at their neck.

A french political person will be there, as well as old publisher CEOs, i will tell them about the situation.

Drats. Why am I always late to the party?

Anyway, IPFs are pristine versions of the original, free of any bit-rot, and vital to the preservation of a part of computing history. It should go without saying that everything else associated with the game (the manual, box art, promotional material, previews, reviews, demo, and source code) should also be preserved.

I consider "modified" ADFs to be just as historically important but I've found many to have minor corruptions. They could be fixed without an IPF, but in some cases it simply isn't worth the effort (simpler to replace the corrupted file). Nevertheless, what boots up before the game begins is just as deserving of preservation.

When in doubt, preserve.

(Sometimes even the original or current rights holders no longer have a copy. It's up to us. And no one but us [fans] seem to care about it.)

@Timtheloon, Exodus - The Last War (AmigaCD) here you see the reason why it's not uploaded. Game is still being sold and therefor a no-no to upload. Please read "Rules & Help" first before asking or posting a question like that. BTW Welcome to the EAB.

That’s the reason why I asked the question surely it’s better to ask than just upload???, I didn’t realise it was still being sold. I do think this is a great service though giving access to data that you may have lost due to floppy degrade or damaged CD’s

Are you using an anomyous account or your own?

If your own and also using an FTP client then make sure that only 1 connection is set. Example below with FileZilla:

You can't use Filezilla at all with the EAB fileserver; The max allowed connections for the server is 1 and the minimum that FZ can use is 2 - It always reserves 1 for the file browser, so if you then try and download something, it'll fail as it'll open a second connection to do it. Setting the max connections to 1 globally or in the site manager won't fix it.

Yes if you set 1 connection as the max in filezilla (globally or connection specific) you can't actually browse at the same time as downloading - if that's not the case for you then you may not have it set up correctly.

Ok, yes. I cannot browse while downloading...

Read some information about it on the net; one is used for control connection and one for the data connection.

What i do is set 1 connection max, untick 'process queue', browse for stuff and add it to the queue. When I've added everything I need just enable 'process queue' again and it gets the lot in one go.

It looks like you can get around the issue I mentioned before by letting the control/browser connection time out before trying to download anything. But I couldn't find a clean way of doing that in FileZilla (even setting all the concurrency options to 1) without simply waiting X amount of time for the old connection to die first.

Pretty sure I gave up in the end because the delay between the timeout (when browsing) and trying to download again became a major pain.

rare_j's idea of making sure the queue isn't processed until I've finished browsing everything is likely the best route. Didn't occur to me at the time, but yeah, it's not behaviour that people using FZ are likely to be used to!

This should only be for the anonymous ftp account. Registered users have 2 simultaneous logins and downloads (some have more). Although, I guess you need to tell filezilla to only use one login for file transfers. I am no filezilla expert as I dont use it.

Code:
Max Logins: 2                      From same IP: Unlimited
I could change the ftp account to 2 logins, 1 download...

Edit: No, I can't since its a shared account.

Code:
200- | Max Logins: 20                     From same IP: 1                    |
200- | Max Sim Uploads: Unlimited         Max Sim Downloads: Unlimited       |
200- | Max Upload Speed:     0.0 K/s      Max Download Speed:    50.0 K/s    |

I do not want to take advantage of being a moderator, but is it not possible to give Moderators in general unlimited access to the FTP?
I think, to become a moderator has qualified us to have access without restrictions!

Define "unlimited access" ? 500 logins? SSH shell permissions? A webcam on the server? =)

Yes, moderators can join the eabadmin group if you want. That gives you access to move / delete etc.
