I have been having a lot of trouble connecting to the Wlug website
recently. It's been at least a week, mayeb two since I remember being
able to connect.
I'm having the same problems from the Office and at home. I tried it
from Olivers place last night and he also couldn't connect. Oliver has
a different ISP. As I'm in Melbourne all of these attempts would
probably use the same link to reach to New Zealand. All of these
attempts where using Firefox.
I have now attempted to view the site from a couple of US based machines
using lynxs and from home using links and have had better success,
although not what I expected.
One of the US machines complained initially with [socket failed: family
10 addr 2002:d237:12fa::1 port 80.] this is probably due to having a
badly setup ipv6 config. It then falls back to using ipv4 and works,
but at bytes per second, 100 *bytes* per second. Which is very very
slow. I see the same speed from the other machines, no ipv6 error tho.
Has there been any changes made tot he server config in the last month?
I know that another wlug list member was having trouble connecting
earlier in the year which I think was resolved once their ISP fixed up
some routing issue. I no longer have any NZ based shell accounts so I
can't do any further testing, I assume it's ok inside NZ otherwise
someone would have mentioned something earlier.
Does anyone have any suggestions for diagnosing connectivity issues like
these? I guess a step by step process for diagnosing such things would
make a good page for the Wiki.
