Hi All, the ftp/http/development server is up and running.

It's modest box :-)
Celeron 333, 352Mb memory, 12Gb HD running Mandrake 10.0.

Generally everybody has read access, specified developers have write.

It has the following :
mysql: (no general read)
phpmyadmin: http://orac.caffeine.co.nz/phpmyadmin/ (no general read)

ftp: ftp://orac.caffeine.co.nz
Web: http://orac.caffeine.co.nz
(you can use the test project for trying out your configuration)
cvs -d:pserver:anonymous@orac.caffeine.co.nz:2401/usr/local/cvsroot login
cvs -z3 -d:pserver:anonymous@orac.caffeine.co.nz:2401/usr/local/cvsroot -r co test

cvs -d:pserver:USERNAME@orac.caffeine.co.nz:2401/usr/local/cvsroot login
cvs -z3 -d:pserver:USERNAME@orac.caffeine.co.nz:2401/usr/local/cvsroot -r co test

The ftp is only allowed from within NZ. If it doesn't work for you complain to you ISP about your reverse DNS not being a .nz domain.

ftp is currently throttled at 50K/s

There is a copy the OzTivo iso image there.

Thre is now a directory called install on the ftp server which should have most things needed to setup a Tivo in NZ. If I have missed anything let me know.

I've updated the loadguide.conf in the install directory to get around ISP's poxy proxies as per Dalc's suggestion.

This problem is called ISP's invisible proxy knowing best. Most if not all ISPs now have a proxy server that handles all its customer's web access without the user having to setup a proxy server in thier browser settings, it just intercepts all traffic on port 80 and does with it as it pleases.

This is generally good for ISP and customer, but if customer, in this case you and me, wants the latest version of a file but the proxy can't be bothered checking if a new version is available so just gives you the old one, so loadguide doesn't bother dling it as it hasn't changed.

This is easily fixed however. Change your loadguide.conf, the last line is:

WGET="wget -t 5 -nv -nd -S -Na /var/log/wget.log"

Add a "-C off"(case matters) so its:

WGET="wget -C off -t 5 -nv -nd -S -Na /var/log/wget.log"

Then the ISP proxy server will be put in its place, letting loadguide always check the latest version from the web server.
