I believe ftp.is.co.za used to be an official portage mirror. We used to be
able to mirror from rsync1.us.gentoo.org, at least.
We now receive a "connection refused" message: I'm unsure if this is a general
problem, or if it means the mirror status has been revoked. I'm presuming the
I've just cleaned up a disk space problem that would have meant our mirror was
out of date. If this was the problem, please can you re-enable us? I've just
fixed this, and are now temporarily mirroring from the dynamic rsync.gentoo.org
storeroom.is.co.za is the machine responsible for mirroring: it mirrors to an
NFS share that ftp.is.co.za then serves from. If you thus allow us access once
more, please allow us connections from storeroom.is.co.za, rather than
If I'm mistaken about ftp.is.co.za being an official mirror, please let me know!
Steps to Reproduce:
ftp.is.co.za = 126.96.36.199, storeroom.is.co.za = 188.8.131.52
184.108.40.206 doesn't seem to be configured properly. Can you review
"How to Mirror Gentoo - Rsync" (http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/rsync.xml)
and post back after you've updated/verified the configuration?
At the moment is.co.za can't provide an rsync server to the general
world, and are thus not eligible for access to the official rsync server
itself. All is thus fine, and I'm going to close this ticket;
Thanks very much for the help!
