Trippynet, go ahead and register on the wiki and I'll approve a registration if you want to make a page on Softwindows 95 explaining the license gen.
Thanks! To be honest, the SW95 extras would probably be best in another tar.gz as it's basically a crack with a readme file. Of course, I won't pop it up unless you're OK with this...

Nah, don't upload the crack files now that I think about it...

Very nice with the FTP. Hopefully it will help people to be able to fully enjoy their machines. I'll look into uploading some of the stuff I've gathered over the years. :) The FTP definitely needs some of those nifty demo disks and the elusive Certain Impact.

I have Certain Impact if anyone wants it? One of the many piles of bundled extras that Ian provides with his systems :)

Edit: I can also upload Premiere if it's useful, I don't believe it needs a license. Of course as Adobe still make Premiere (albeit nothing that runs on IRIX), I will of course not upload without approval...

I'd like to get hold of some of the other IndiZone disks if anyone has them? I only have the first one.

Okay, so after thinking it over, we're now allowing up to 6.5.29 to be uploaded. Anyone with images or tar.gz files is welcomed to submit them.

I want to ensure we've some redundancy here before opening the gates for 6.5.30 and more. So please be patient!

I can upload Framemaker 5.5, as well. Won't upload unless allowed though. It does need a license code. But it's a very basic setup. No Flexlm, or dongles.

Little PSA:

Please do not grab files from /pub/incoming

Its intended as a write-only directory, and because of malware like Photo.scr and info.zip and the like I must ask people to refrain from grabbing stuff if I've not a chance a vet it yet.

Little problem. I've found numerous instances (so far) of photo.scr on the FTP, in places outside the incoming directory. Either someones computer is infected, or there is foul play involved here. Do NOT download these files. They are some kind of cryptocurrency(monero) mining malware for Windows.

Every directory under /pub/legacy-irix has photo.scr in it, and one case info.zip - a repackaging of photo.scr. Fortunately, nowhere else.

As a fellow ftp server operator, I can say that every writable directory will soon have this file. Removing is a game of whack a mole and a waste of time. A quick grep of the xferlog tells me so far today only there have been no less than 6107 failed attempts to drop Photo.scr. Also, if you don't want to end up being abused as a drop site for child porn or warez, no directory must be both world-writable and readable at the same time! This is very important or you will get yourself into big, big trouble.

Here's what I do (vsftpd, linux):
* write_enable=YES
* anon_upload_enable=YES
* chown_uploads=YES
* chown_username=ftpupload

Permissions of the FTP server root looks like this:

Code: Select all

root@jetway:~# ls -l /srv/ftp
total 4
drwx-wx---  2 root ftp   22 May  6 17:10 incoming
drwxr-xr-x  6 root ftp   88 Jun  7 17:41 mirrors
drwx--x--- 10 root ftp 4096 May 13 21:30 outgoing
drwxr-xr-x  4 root ftp   33 Dec 28  2015 pub
You're allowed to upload files to /incoming (and nowhere else), but you cannot delete, overwrite, rename, mkdir etc. If a transfer fails, you need to rename it on the client end or ask me to remove the file from /incoming before you can re-upload. The fact that you can transfer a file and then not see it confuses some people and old versions of Internet Explorer. But what's in /incoming is between me and the uploader and no one else's business so that's what it is.

There's this crap more or less perpetually in my /incoming but since nobody can download it, it doesn't harm anyone:

Code: Select all

root@jetway:~# ls -l /srv/ftp/incoming/
total 1544
-rw------- 1 ftpupload ftp 1578496 May  6 17:11 Photo.scr
FTP is a pain in the you-know-where to run in 2018. Good luck and be safe.

Just a suggestion, but pre-create a file with that name in incoming, zero size, owned by someone else, not writeable.
