I'm trying to use some of the software collections at
softwarecollections.org, but the machine I would like to install
them on lives behind a firewall. We had configured our firewall to
allow our machines to access the IP address 184.108.40.206, which
used to be the address of softwarecollections.org, but it appears
that it has recently moved to AWS hosting, and
softwarecollections.org is currently resolving to 220.127.116.11 ...
at least for the moment, from here. Is this permanent? Can you
tell me what range of addresses we now actually need to allow in
order to be assured our machines can get to
softwarecollections.org? Any thoughts of possibly providing a
single, fixed front-end IP for downloads from firewalled machines?
Also, it would be helpful if such details were documented on the
One other thing: On the page https://www.softwarecollections.org/en/about/, under "Who Runs SoftwareCollections.org?" it says:
If you have any questions about the site, its content, or software hosted here, please contact admin softwarecollections org.
Email to that address fails, "User unknown."
