Mirroring

Dotsrc.org is currently carrying a large number of mirrors. All mirrors are accessible via http and ftp, and rsync is also offered for a selection.

Please see the mirror pages for information on how to access and request new mirrors.

Usenet

In collaboration with Aalborg University dotsrc.org provides free access to a large number of non-binary newsgroups.

You are required to sign-up to access the news server.

IRC

We provide one of the two IRCNet servers in Denmark. The service is only available for users in Denmark (*.dk).

Dotsrc.org

Formerly known as SunSITE.dk, we are an Open Source hosting service, providing mirrors of popular Open Source software, having a public news server and an IRC-server. For more details on the services we provide see the boxes on the right.

dotsrc.org is run by a group of committed volunteers known as the staff group, who can help you out by answering questions you have about our services. Read more about dotsrc.org.

News

Two new services and new mirrors
Monday September 12th 2016
We now run a tile caching server for OpenStreetMap and are a part of their tile CDN. We are the primary server for tiles served to clients connecting from Denmark, so if OpenStreetMap feels 'snappier' (at least in Denmark) it is thanks to us.

We also set up a tor middle relay. This is a non-exit relay, so it only receives encrypted traffic and passes it along to another relay. Some stats are available here.

On our mirror server, we added a few new mirrors, including:
Linux Mint (and Packages)
BlackArch Linux
Tails
OpenVZ
GIMP
Fedora (and Extra Packages for Enterprise Linux)
Call for hardware sponsorship
Monday September 5th 2016
During the recent hardware upgrade, we used all our 4TB drives, so we call for sponsors of additional hard drives in order to keep running our services as optimally as possible. Specifically we need SATA 3.5" hard drives 4TB (or more) and preferably designed for 24/7 usage (e.g. the Western Digital SE/RE/Gold 4TB drive). Sponsoring either as funding or as hardware will of course add you to our list of proud sponsors. Contact staff@dotsrc.org.
Added https access to the mirror
Monday September 5th 2016
Thanks to Let's Encrypt providing free SSL certificates, our mirror service is now available using TLS at https://mirrors.dotsrc.org.
We also updated our Usenet signup system, so if you have any problems signing up, please send an email to staff@dotsrc.org.
