    Can someone please try to find out what the above system is all about? Unfortunately, with the new EU rules, whois does no longer work here.

    The system above has been blocking my news server for quite some time now. I don't know (and don't care) if it's deliberate or by accident, all I want is for it to stop.

    In the meantime my news server temporarily listens to port 4119 rather than the standard 119.

    The system above has been blocking my news server for quite some time
    now.

    Is that why there is so little Lee Lofaso drivel?

    I consider that a bonus ... keep it that way.

    If he wants in Fidonet, make him get to apply for a nodenumber.

    Then use a website, where you can do 'whois ip' lookups. The first one that came up in google:

    https://www.ultratools.com/tools/ipWhoisLookupResult

    Points that IP address to a dutch provider. It lists some phone numbers, you could try...

    The system above has been blocking my news server for quite some time
    now.

    Because it's doing somekind of DOS attack?

    I don't know (and don't care) if it's deliberate or by accident,

    Can't you block that ip in your firewall

    I still get a comprehensive report from whois.
    geoiplookup tells me the ip address is hosted in Willemstad Curaccao, one
    of the Dutch Antilles. Whois tells me the provider is vested in the Netherlands.

    I think that there's a misunderstanding, the blocking IP 190.2.141,250 should be a server in a server farm as the site of the owner of the ip class shows:

    https://www.worldstream.nl/

    This server could act as a VPN terminator (like the ones used to download torrent files or to see pirated video streaming etc. etc.)

    Maybe David and the troll use a VPN to connect to Bjorn server and the VPN terminator blocks the port/address of the Bjorn server, wht I don't know.

    This is my opinion. :)

    Point access is just *sooo* hopelessly outdated, I'm surprised that you are still nor aware of it.

    A smartphone or a laptop with a mail client is all the software you need nowadays to get full access to Fidonet. No nodelist, no mail tosser or scanner, no special FTN editor, no nothing like that. Just a standard computer and internet access.

    Let me say that I think that is too much "over" to block a service on a transport/routing platform.

    One thing is to stop annoying messages and another thing is to stop a complete messaging service. :)

    If you loose your identity you loose yourself.

    Why to join another message network (plus the effort to configure the software and so on) when you already have lot of message platforms at no efforts on Internet?

    Moreover usenet is dying.

    I came back in fidonet because I was looking at quality messages with moderators that keep clean the feeds (ok, I found another world but I hope that sooner or later all will be fixed) and this is the winning difference in my honest opinion. :)

    The system above has been blocking my news server for quite some time
    now. I
    don't know (and don't care) if it's deliberate or by accident, all I want
    is for it to stop.

    what do you mean "has been blocking my news server"?? do you mean that folks coming from that system cannot connect to your server or what?

    what i find most interesting is the IP is apparently held by a NL entity but is apparently a latin american IP... i say that because all the responses i can find are from lacnic...

    apparently that IP is also known for hosting malware or some other sort of attack entity and has been attacking a lot of systems recently...

    https://www.abuseipdb.com/check/190.2.141.250

    if what you were trying to say above is "that IP is attacking my system" then the correct response is to block that IP in your firewall...

    I think that this host could be a TOR exit router, in this case you
    can't do anything to solve your problem. :(

    Now that's an idea. Thanks.

    it is not listed in the TOR routers list that my firewall uses...

    Once men turned their thinking over to machines in the hope that this would set them free. But that only permitted other men with machines to enslave them.

    Moreover usenet is dying.

    I thought it's used for unauthorized copying of stuff nowadays.

    Is Fidonet still alive or is it past dead? More like undead ...

    I came back in fidonet because I was looking at quality messages

    God luck, I hope you find one ...

    I found lot of great messages, lot of help, wonderful and helpful people, new foreign friends and a bunch of Italian ex sysops and points that want with me to rebuild fidonet in Italy. :)

    Where there is the will there is the way, never give up.

    Yes I've found also a bit of garbage, but the garbage sooner or later will be collected to the dump. ;)

    I used to run Gecho and the reason I parted with it and changed to Fmail is that Gecho had some shortcomings which were never going to be fixed. Gerard left Fidonet and abandonned Gecho just like that. Gecho became abondonware overnight.

    I never regretted moving to Fmail.

    I still get a comprehensive report from whois.
    geoiplookup tells me the ip address is hosted in Willemstad Curaccao, one of the Dutch Antilles. Whois tells me the provider is vested in the Netherlands.

    Can someone please try to find out what the above system is all about? Unfortunately, with the new EU rules, whois does no longer work here.

    The system above has been blocking my news server for quite some time
    now.
    I
    don't know (and don't care) if it's deliberate or by accident, all I want is for it to stop.

    In the meantime my news server temporarily listens to port 4119 rather than the standard 119.
