Hmmm, that's funny. I could use TCP, UDP or ICMP for hacking. I guess we better shut down the internet... >;-)
Over the past couple of weeks, you might have noticed that for
Sourceforge downloads, "Lausanne, Switzerland (SWITCH)"
(switch.dl.sourceforge.net) was no longer listed as a mirror option.
The reason was that the disk array of the server had become too small
to hold the entire Sourceforge mirror dataset (because of all the
binary stuff I guess - this thing should be called ".iso-forge" :-).
We have now replaced it with a new server with larger disks, so now it
should be fully included in the Sourceforge download mirror set.
Note that, like mirror.switch.ch and many other of our services, this
is reachable over IPv6 in addition to IPv4.
Now go and test that thing :-)

I'm looking for systems speaking SCTP  in order to expose the
experimental SCTP port scanning support for Nmap  to some more
real-world testing. If you have network access to systems with
(non-trivial) SCTP-based services, and would be willing to run a
scan for me, then I'd be interested in hearing from you off-list.
I'm especially interested in tests against proprietary SCTP
stacks, but any real-world SCTP services would be of interest.
