Just out of curiosity, what happened to the old web based file server which was in place before Magix took over? That system seemed to work well. Is there no way to get it back up and running?

That server was also hosted by Magix,

Regarding the latest WHDLoad updates of games etc.
Where will they be placed until there might be a new FTP server opened?

What work has progressed on finding a new FTP based server?

I assume one needs about 2 TB storage (I recall hearing there was about 1+ TB of stored files already), a minimum of a 640 GB bandwidth? What would be the cost of that?

Of course everybody is free to offer more alternatives, but we already have two kind offers to host the files again. Just be patient as it'll take some time to sort it.

In the meantime, does anyone know of the next best place to get the latest TOSEC set? Preferably allowing me to download bits individually, of course.

So we got everything safely? Thank you Magic for all your efforts. I'm guessing we have legal issues with the hosting. :-(

Yep, the whole content is safe

Nope Just issues with the conditions of the webhost regarding having an 'open' FTP server. Simply put: No legal issues at all. We hope that during the next weeks an alternative will be available with the same (or at least almost the same) content.

We have a read-only restored site up and running!

host: grandis.nu
port: 21
user: ftp
pass: any password will do.

Enjoy and let me know of any problems.

Edit: Oh, enable "passive mode" in your FTP client if you have problems downloading.

Yes, it works!. I've opened it with Filezilla. Which is the "friendly link" to use IE?

OffTopic: I was trying to find ImageConverter 2.1, but it isn't there either

Why register your own account on the EAB FTP when the "ftp" account works just as well? There are a few reasons.
The "ftp" account has a speed limit on it and a limit on concurrent logins.
If you do not want to register but still want to get rid of the speed limits, you can use our google drive instead, available here: https://drive.google.com/drive/folde...XRvNkVOelNNRk0

Your own registered account does not have such limits. It does, however, have a limit to how much you can download per week. Its currently set to 50GB/Week (Resets at Monday 00:00)

Also, to upload, you need your own registered account.

To create your own account, you must be a member of the EAB Forums here, have at least 15 posts to your name and your last post can be no older than 5 days. If you only just arrived to EAB with nice things to upload but do not yet have the posts to create an FTP account, let me know and I'll add you manually.

You can create your own account from here:
https://www.grandis.nu:444/eabadduser/

When you see this, you have entered everything correctly and can log in to the FTP.

Code:
200 User (<your name>) successfully added.
Once created, you can log in with your selected username and password.
To upload, create a folder in ~Uploads with the same name as your username. Notice that it is case sensitive.


Some notes: I strongly recommend you get a proper FTP client instead of using a browser. FileZilla is free.
