We would like to create new mirror for FreeBSD using IPv6 and IPv4!
We know that already there are two mirrors in Poland but they are only
accessible via IPv4.
We have host for it already running configured public ftp server:
which is IPv4 and IPv6 accessible with addresses:
we have good IPv4 and IPv6 connectivity to ftp.freebsd.org, tha average
throughput is about 500 KB - 1 MB/s !
Below, I'm sending you a few words describing our institution:
Poznań Supercomputing and Networking Center (PSNC) was founded at the
end of 1993 by the State Committee for Scientific Research.
PSNC is responsible for the development, management and maintenance of a
countrywide Polish National Research and Educational Network POL-622.
PSNC concentrates on the following activities:
1. Operator of countrywide Polish National Research and Educational
2. Operator of the Poznań Metropolitan Area Network POZMAN,
3. Provider of HPC and HPV services,
4. Development Center for Next Generation Networks, Grids and Portals.
POL-622 network connects 21 MANs in Poland with 622 Mb/s links based on
ATM technology. The network offers the access to the pan-European
research network GÉANT, access to the worldwide Internet as well as
advanced network services: IP multicast, IPv6 transmission, guaranteed
bandwidth services and VPNs. Additionally POL-622 provides the broadband
connectivity to 5 HPC/HPV centers in Poland.
PSNC operates also the Poznań Metropolitan Area Network POZMAN. POZMAN
network has connected all universities, the Polish Academy of Sciences
institutes as well as research and development institutes from Poznań
(about 200 connected locations). It also integrates scientific
activities with business and administration needs e.g. developed and
maintains the virtual network of the City Hall. POZMAN network bases on
own fiber cables infrastructure (under 200 km) and uses two
technologies: ATM 622 Mb/s and Gigabit Ethernet.

Please send me instruction how to implement mirroring mechanisms.
Please also provide me email address to pl.freebsd.org DNS hostmaster, I have tried hostmaster at pl.freebsd.org but such address does not exist!
