Default Call for Help with llrnet server

Hi all,

we have a problem with our llrnet server. It is running very unstable in the last weeks due to thermal or other hardware problems. It is not sure how long the machine will be available for us.

Is there anybody with the resources to run an llrnet server. That means both the PC and the time to maintain the server.

Please contact me or Citrix for that matter. If there is somebody able to help we will plan together with Footmaster( who runs the server now ) the best way for transition of the server.

Thanks,

Lars

1) any windows/linux machine should do -- llrnet is not cpu intensive, the machine should stay on most of the time.
2) any connection which is on 24/7 will do

It must be a windows machine with permanent connection to the internet and must run 24/7.

The machine should also provide a read only ftp or scp connection so that i can download the result files whenever needed.

I a file with the WUs into the forum like it is done now and the maintainer of the machine has to append that file with the work file on the server.
(As far as i know a restart of the llrnet server app is needed afterwards)

Thats all that is needed as far as i know. Maybe Footmaster or anybody else using the llrnet server can correct me.
( I can not use the server due to several restrictions i have when running software on my office machines. So i have no first hand experience with the server)

There is a newer version of the llrnet server that uses mysql as a backend but i don't know anything about it yet.

My machine is 24/7 on. My IP is dynamic so from time to time my connection goes down but I have a software that controls and restores the internet connection. I have bandwidth limit of 4GB per month. How much traffic the server would generate?
Is it necessary to install a dedicated sofware to run the server?

Give me two or three days to see If I can find a computer at university that can be used as a server.

Dynamic IP will not be a problem, I can register a URL to point to your IP. You will have to install a software that updates your IP each time it changes.

Lars,

You might want to use a proxy llr server that way you have more control over what numbers the server is serving, also you will get real time residues.

Till now no success to find a new server.
At the moment the old one runs stable again.
But on the long run we still need a new home.
If anybody thinks he can commit himself and his resources
long enough for the project please inform us.

If Footmasters PC breaks down or something, I may be able to have my laptop running as a backup. It is often turned on "most of the time".
However, only the next two weeks and I cannot guarantee anything.

Right now I'm only thinking loud

OH

I have most of what is needed to help - stable machines, the willingness and know-how to do it, and a 24/7 Internet connection.

The only problem is bandwidth. There would be plenty of bandwidth for incoming data, but out going data would be limited to about 56K (its a broadband satellite connection, so latency might be an issue also). If you think that is adequate let me know and we'll get it rolling.
