Some of you have probably noticed that the MUUG server was inaccessible
from the Internet since sometime last Thursday. This was affecting
access not only to the web and FTP services, but also to all the mailman
mailing lists. The problem now appears to be resolved!
The U of M campus network has a packet shaper that sits between the
internal network and the pipe to the commercial Internet. If it detects
too many very heavy traffic flows, it black-lists the host addresses
involved. For some reason, this happened to the MUUG server, possibly
due to a DoS attempt on it... (We're still investigating.)
Anyway, the networking group has now added the MUUG server to an
exceptions list, so this will (hopefully) not happen again.
Sorry for any inconvenience this extended outage may have caused.
