  • For the IO and Network speed is nice, but sometimes I couldn't connect to my vps, and sometimes it took soo long to have any pressed key sent to the ssh.

    This morning, 5.32AM in Indonesia, yes, it's faster than before :) So the problem is someone using it for DDOS? :o

    It's working here, have you clear your cache? Or using proxy?

    Yeah you got right in the middle of that, apologies. He was using us for an outbound attack and it took me a bit to get it cleaned up due to the same issue you experienced.

    I cleared the cache, but it didn't help. I don't use a proxy or the like.

    If I ping catalystvps.com it can't resolve the IP. So my ISP must have a DNS error.

    Is this the IP? 50.7.6.114 I found it in the web. If I ping that IP I get a timeout.

    Ryan was having issues at his work earlier, but confirmed that it worked from AT&T 3G, school's T1 (slow trash), and my home cable.

    Using Internet.bs for the dns, I wonder if that is causing issues. Website is on Incero network which is quite good.

    23.29.123.7 is the correct IP.

  • Thx for the IPs.

    If I try to browse this IP: 208.67.222.222 I get a time out This IP 23.29.123.7 gives the same error as browsing the URL: server not found.

  • I just see the whois and Catalystvps is using Internetbs DNS, and sometimes when we use Internetbs DNS ( just like my previous blog dns) it's having problem. Now I'm switched to HE, and never noticed any downtime alert from Monitoring services.

    Well we got a little delayed in combining the vps brand with the regular site, but this probably accelerates that.

  • JarJar Member

    It's up. Apparently issues with using the registrar's dns.

  • ya, it's up now...

  • JarJar Member

    Anyway, thanks for sharing your tests. Obviously I'd have preferred they didn't fall in line with the heaviest abuser to date, but I'm happy to see such results during said event. You can see some of the low points of FDC's network, especially in the Atlanta Linode test. Looking forward to seeing what you think of the NC node ;)

    @jarland...

    Do you have someone called 'tomas p' reply to support? he says his NL and Zlin only but I think his the US locations too.

  • JarJar Member

    @Jack I actually deal with a reseller because we've built up a bit of a relationship. He has some leverage to get me around some of FDC's shortcomings in terms of support and IP requests.

  • What exactly can you do with a 128MB VPS? Examples anyone?

    Ah , yea IP's was an annoying part of FDC also they null IPs at little floods like 20k p/s and 80mbit floods its stupid!

    VPN Nginx,PHP,MySQL SSH Tunnel Nginx reverse proxy for example if you have the box on a filtering network A lot , lot more...

  • JarJar Member

    VPN, proxy, small hosting (for those who prefer control), outgoing DDOS, spamming, backups.

  • JackJack Member

    @jarland said: outgoing DDOS, spamming

    FDC would probably kick you in the teeth for both but hey!

    yea but I had a CPanel node with FDC using there 'backup server #1' as the plan from them they suspended it [disabled port as switch] due to someone uploading a DoS shell and sending like 5mbit UDP flood due to how oversold there zlin network is that's all that could exit.

  • @Jack Thank you @jarland Thank you

    @toratekdotnet ;

    128MB ram is more than enough for alot of things...

    I generally run out of bandwidth/disk before ram.

  • @toratekdotnet said: What exactly can you do with a 128MB VPS?

    <3 cute 64(!) MB boxes for VPN/proxy etc. :)

  • earlearl Member

    I was able to install a desktop with a browser on a 32mb VPS so yeah 128MB is a lot!!

    That VPS is running: pptp and openvpn, DNS resolver (in an ovz container, for VPN clients), dns host for 6 domains, file storage, irc bouncer and mysql for a MC server.
