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).

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.

Dotsrc offline
Thursday September 28th 2017
Due to a damaged fiber between our ISP's (DeIC) POP at AAU and their router in Lyngby, all our services, except our IRC-server which is hosted elsewhere, was unfortunately offline from 2017-09-26 09:05:07 CEST until 2017-09-27 10:55:06.

The fiber got fixed around 17:00, but unfortunately our interface were in "errdisable" mode due to link-flap, and we had not enabled auto recovery. Lesson learned.

Furthermore within the not too distant future, we should have a second 10G link, which will give us redundancy in situations like this one.

We apologize for any inconvenience.
10Gbit
Wednesday July 19th 2017
The dotsrc servers are now backed by a 10Gbit Internet connection, and on top of this, the mirror server (mirrors.dotsrc.org) has been upgraded to a vastly better server, equipped with a 10Gbit network card.

This big upgrade would not have been possible without our sponsors. Big thanks to:
DKUUG - for a big cash sponsorship.
DeIC - 10Gbit Internet connection.
Aalborg University - Sponsored their old Google Search Appliance server, along with two Cisco 3750X switches + 10Gbit modules.
Cisco - Sponsored two IP Services licenses for our 3750X switches, allowing us to peer with DeIC using BGP.
FOSDEM - Sponsored two HP 10GbE dual port network cards.
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)
Lineage OS
openSUSE
Kali Linux (and Packages)
