Whose FTPs are still up nowadays?

Not sure if this is the right forum section to ask in, but I couldn't find more obvious candidates.

It's been a long while since I last mingled with Amiga-themed FTPs. I'm not too sure if many of you are still running any anymore. Unless people could care to prove me wrong here? I'm in a mood to lurk around again, hehe.

Same here, it's been a long time since I've been able to sync my collection and all the old FTPs seem to be dead.

hmm, seems this idea is moot now, considering Bippy's limited speed and all these people that want to use it, I'll leave off updating my collection.

It's been long since last time I connected to BippyM's FTP. (so far nice to BippyM )

I am interested in his work on WHDLoad project, but I don't need FTP access for that, do I?

And rescently I found nice well up to date FTP with Amiga TOSEC and Incomplete CAPS collection, but because of some other emu stuff I can't post the web page here.

I've been meaning to set up an FTP since I first joined EAB, whenever that was. So, after seeing this thread, I set about putting a server together using an old PC I had lying around. I put a new 250GB drive in it, a Firewire card and a wireless card, and it didn't work - whenever I copied a file to the main drive from an external Firewire drive it crashed. So, I spent nearly £200 building a new computer to use as a dedicated FTP/database/web server. Put it together, copied a file over from the Firewire drive - it crashed again. Turns out that the £10 Firewire card is dodgy.

Arse.

Anyway, I'm still working on putting the server together. If anyone's interested, have a look here:

Address: ant512.homeip.net
Port: 21
Username: eab
Password: thisisatest

I've only got 256Kb up, so don't expect miracles, and there isn't much on the server yet. It should be up most of the time (this is the reason for getting a dedicated box).

If anyone wants to upload anything, PM me and I'll create an upload account for you.

Note that this is still a test, so don't be surprised if the server suddenly vanishes.

bippym,

since you want/need to limit speed to an FTP server, would you consider sticking it online as a torrent instead? That way many more people can access it and share speeds.

I don't want it as a torrent - I'm using a real Amiga here. I just set up AmiTradeCentre and I'm dying to try it out.

If someone could teach me how to get eMule to actually download anything at all (even with the ports set up and made router-compatible) then I might take that as a more serious source in future, alongside Usenet and torrents.

A bit of warning though, when it comes round to seeding you may end up waiting a long time for anyone to accept your seed. I still am.
