HELP indymedia.org is down

HELP indymedia.org is down
please give us the IP numbers.
Please give us IP numbers ... for example

 http://www.indymedia.org.uk/ is  http://212.100.230.17/

and works fine

the following are unaffected and still work as good as ever:

 http://portland.biotechimc.org/

 http://www.indymedia.org.uk/

 http://www.madhattersimc.org/

 http://www.indymedia.org.nz/

CAVEAT:

not all IP numbers will work, (Virtual Servers) example:

 http://www.indymedia.org.nz/ is  http://203.53.14.41/ but its not the same

(but a very interesting page nonetheless :-)

cyber attack?
by bitter root Wednesday July 23, 2003 at 12:54 AM

Outage appears to be widespread/global. Attempts to link from the first three pages of Google returns on "indymedia" were successful only with IMCs in UK, Ireland, Norway, Netherlands and Israel (not Jerusalem), and SF.

Major US IMC sites (NY, Chicago, DC, Portland, Seattle) that appeared on those pages won't show.

root name server issue 23.Jul.2003 11:28

We are unsure as to what the problem was as it affected the root indymedia.org name servers. That is why all names ending in indymedia.org did not work while all others did. However, portland does not have a strong working relationship with those who manage the root name servers. It is my understanding that they have had problems before. We will be taking steps to provide alternative domain names on different servers and publicizing those names so there will be alternatives available for our readers. In addition, we will be making some proposals to the indymedia dns group about ways to remedy these sorts of problems in the future. We apologize for any inconvenience.
