Problem is that somebody did send mails to my server and the qmailer is configured to rebounce everything with a message "unknow address".
During the time I was away some of the receiver made an abuse request to my ISP and as I did not react within 36 hours to that request the server is blocked at the moment.

I will see what and when I can do something.

Attention: There is a risk that I have to take the server offline for a while.
It might even be necessary to make a complete new setup.
Somebody managed to use the server to send Spam. At the moment the system seems to be clean again but I am not sure if there is still something hidden or if there is a vulnerability in the OS that will allow the hacker to enter the system again and do even more harm.

Assume it is compromised.

Would it be too much to ask, that the tasks in the PRP:- Pick A Range thread is loaded into the PRPnet server and hopefully completed before Primegrids upcoming PSP challenge wich runs from March 1st untill March 15th (15 days). It's not sure that a prime hides among these 31 ranges, however it would be really sad if a prime is among these 494 candidates and Primegrid then spents resources doing thousands of unnescessary tests on a k wich doesn't need testing in the range Primegrid is searching. If not possible to test all of them, maybe some of the powers to be, can convince Primegrid to start their challenge with these 494 candidates. Eitherway is fine by me, just as long as these task are completed either before the challenge begins or soon after it begins.

Also come join the challenge, any help could bring this sad milestone down to just 1 figures in stead of 4 figures :)

Take care

Wouldn't it make sense for this project to completely get rid of manually reserved ranges and load them in servers? It seems as though < 5% of the work is done by manual work and they create the potential for much unnecessary work if there happens to be a prime amongst them.

Default Server upgrade?

Hi,

would it be possible to upgrade the servers? I have 2x 1/2 core on double check and in the stats, it's my computers name that appears, not my userid (and also my email adress )

Thanks

Until 6 months ago, PSP members were using PRP pick a range. ltd and I have tried to finish of these ranges when they sit for too long. We could have a PSP drive to complete everything to 15M if enough people are interested. (if some one is interested we can set up a separate PRPnet server to finish these numbers)

As the test grow longer we are generating fewer and fewer ranges... so the chances of missing a prime are low.
