    Default FTP site

    IS the ildaswap FTP down or has my IP been banned?

    I have tried to log in to that one multiple times in the last week without success. Another member asked me if the MameLD2000 zip on that server was corrupted, and I haven't been able to go see what's up.

    I belive ftp.ildaswap.net is the one that he is talking about and I am also unable to connect.

    Yes, I haven't been able to connect to the ildaswap.net FTP server either. If I remember correctly, It was hosted by Crutch and he's done with lasers. I'd be glad to host one but cannot afford to buy a URL right now. LOL. Then again... nothing wrong with the PLFTP it's just not as popular for some reason.

    What is the difference in the content of ildaswap and plftp? Are they the same, similar, or completely different?

    Is there a current (complete) copy of what crutch was hosting?

    I have space on a server w/ decent uptime/bandwidth.

    I also tried several things and searched many posts for FTP-Connection problems. The ftp.photonlexicon.com works fine, but i believe on the ildaswap.server are more useful files, because itīs online for longer time. Or iīm wrong

    Here two screens of failed connections with FireFTP

    I hope someone could help

    Cruch's FTP server (the ildaswap one) has been down for several weeks. Since Cruch isn't into lasers, he doesn't log in to PL very often. I suspect he is unaware that there is a problem with the server.

    Does anyone have Cruch's contact information? Would be nice to drop him a message and see if he could look into the problem. If he can't keep the server up any longer, it would be good if we could at least copy all the content to the plftp server so it isn't lost... (Cruch's server always had more traffic, probably because it was started earlier.)

    Thanks for quick answer

    I am glad thatīs not a problem of my computer skills.

    it would be good if we could at least copy all the content to the plftp server so it isn't lost
    if this is possible, it would be a better solution then the current situation.

    A few months ago, i made a backup of both the Ildaswap as well as the PL ftp.
    Have a 100Mbit connection at home, and now it might come in handy.
    If there is enough space on the PLFTP i can upload all the contents over ?

    Maybe it's better to wait first to see if crutch can get it up again (the server i mean...dirty minds ). If not, i can upload the contents i have.
    I didn't fail !
    I just found out 10,000 ways that didn't work.
