Anyone know why mirror.cs.princeton.edu is down or if its permanent?


Apparently https://mirror.cs.princeton.edu/pub/...are64-current/ is down.
https://mirror.cs.princeton.edu/pub/mirrors/ is down for several distros. Anyone know why or if this is a permanent change?

However, https://mirror.math.princeton.edu/pub/ and
https://mirror.math.princeton.edu/pu...are64-current/ is still active but it doesn't appear to be current.

I almost always have problems with that mirror. The sysadmin for it is pretty active on here, and he's responsive, if you email. (A fellow Slacker, too.)

I usually use their ftp mirror, but yesterday it was flakey so I chose another, ftp://mirrors.xmission.com/slackware...are64-current/ . I logged in by hand and it was up, but slackpkg had problems. Not sure what's going on with them but others are seeing it as well.

Aren't there DoS attacks on Slackware.uk & other mirrors? What makes you think that one is immune?

I had problems with that mirror tonight, so I switched to another U. S. mirror (utah.edu) and it seemed work okay.
