Default [OT] Attn Users of news.cis.dfn.de

I can not substantiate the veracity of this post, but pointing a webbrowser
to news.cis.dfn.de seems to suggest that it is accurate. I've not read over
the new pages yet, but it might be good for users of "the german server" to
re-read the information at http://news.cis.dfn.de. You may need to change
your access accordingly.

CF:

This change may explain why some users have not received prompt return info
from them of late.

Regards,
Chad

Ok, that didn't work...are you talking about the 'news.individual.net'
name they're using now? They're not even consistent about it: the
config info for Agent says to point it at 'news.individual.net' but
the screen shots still show the old 'news.cis.dfn.de' name. And (at
least as of tonight) the two names resolve to the same IP address.
Does it cost anything extra for them to maintain two entries in the
name server?

I had heard that news.cis.dfn.de was going back to its roots of
being a news server for faculty, staff, students, and all
friends of the university.

I believe that current subscribers are not affected but new
subscribers will have to use news.individual.net. I checked
that news service earlier today, using rpd.behavior for
reference, and it was identical.

I think that's what I'm talking about. I ran across the referenced note in
one of the news related newsgroups, and it talks about how dfn.de is using
the news.individual.net name now...

Anyway, as Matt posted, if its not affecting anyone yet we might get to stay
put. I'm not at all sure, and I just wanted to give people a heads up.

*nod* Okay. I'm not sure how the difference is going to work. I'll keep my
eye on it.
