    Hello ROBERT.

    <<Following up a message from Daryl Stout to ROBERT WOLFE on 2/12 about Re: Test >>


    You were told incorrectly. My DixieNet, the FTN network, is still up
    and running. There is an ISP called DixieNet that someone might have RW>confused me with. But, anyway, sorry to see you go, although I wish you RW>had confirmed it with me first before leaving.

    It was winserver.org -- the domain I had been using with Internet
    Rex for awhile. I never could get a connect with your system, and
    never saw any traffic.

    Plus, you never responded to me via email (wx4qz at arrl dot net)
    or FIDONet Netmail to 1:19/33 -- so I didn't know what to think.

    The networks I'm getting from Kris Jones and Gert Kofoed Andersen
    will get the axe soon if I don't hear something from them.

    I would have liked to keep the echoes, but with no netmail or
    email replies, I figured all was gone.


    I am going to have to echo Daryl's sentiments here. All connection to either os2bbs.org or winserver.org went dead. NO response from either one - for weeks.
    No e-mail, no NetMail, no nothing.

    I absolute abhor losing a Net, much less an entire Network.

    Here are the test results that I depended on for concluding that DixieNet went AWOL:


    ; <<>> DiG 8.3 <<>> @ os2bbs.org any
    ; (1 server found)
    ;; res options: init recurs defnam dnsrch
    ;; got answer:
    ;; ->>HEADER<<- opcode: QUERY, status: NXDOMAIN, id: 6
    ; ^^^^^^^^
    ; flags: qr rd ra; QUERY: 1, ANSWER: 0, AUTHORITY: 1, ADDITIONAL: 0
    ;; os2bbs.org, type = ANY, class = IN
    org. 14m59s IN SOA a0.org.afilias-nst.info.

    NXDOMAIN means non-existent domain.

    Ping results:


    [c:\]ping winserver.org
    PING winserver.org: 56 data bytes

    ----winserver.org PING Statistics----
    13 packets transmitted, 0 packets received, 100% packet loss ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
