The Network

This page documents, for those with accounts on the network, just what machine resources are currently available and the sorts of jobs they are being provided for.

For a list of SSH host keys and their fingerprints for the public machines, please see this file.

All machines are connected at 100Mbit/sec full-duplex to a dedicated Cisco 2948G switch with redundant gigabit uplinks. Internet connectivity and colocation is provided by Yahoo!. All systems have logged serial consoles and remote power management.

Administrative Policies

If the machine in question is "owned" by someone specific, please direct queries to them first when asking about administrative issues, this includes changes to user accounts or filesystem layout.

All new user accounts must be cleared with the admin staff, and are given only to FreeBSD developers, either in the docs, ports or general src hacking category. Accounts may be given to non-project developers if they have a specific need to test something of a truly experimental nature and need access to a FreeBSD machine for the purpose. See New Account Creation Procedure page for details on new accounts. Accounts are not given to the general public for "vanity domain" mail or other such uses. It would be a waste of time to ask. Thanks.
