Berklix - Server Names, Services & User Info

This is


Various entities share domains on the various servers, so sometimes multiple variant URLs can take you to the same place.


Host naming is subject to change; a snapshot is below. For current information, consult the name servers, available via normal BSD Unix Nslookup(8) command or /usr/local/bin/dig from /usr/ports/dns/bind9-devel etc. Localy on berklix servers, See Also /site/domain/berklix/etc/motd

Avoid using physical host names (DNS A records). Use virtual functional aliases (DNS CNAME records) listed below. This minimises user inconvenience, & allows us maximal flexibility to invisibly dynamicly re-allocate resources during upgrades, reconfigurations etc.

Virtual Hosts

FTP (download only, upload blocked),
Mail - Receivers ,
Mail List Servers ,
Mail - POP3 Servers - ,
Ssh & Sftp
Name Servers,
SMTP Relay ,

Note EG www2 may or not be same as mx2 etc, Or Not. ie same number does not indicate same physical host.

  • Use SSH only (to avoid password capture by intermediate systems). Rlogin & Telnet are forbidden. They are only for use of administrator, to rescue machines, if for some reason sshd might fail. (After which use am immediate change of password would occur).
  • Use sftp rather than ftp if loging in with your password.
  • Mail should not be sent to login_name @ berklix .org, but to login_name @ user.berklix .org
  • Logins are just on one host "": Central multi host passwording is not done.
  • The ftp servers run read only to avoid Warez dumpers. Please don't create so much traffic it might annoy our sites
  • Some of packages are installed to maintain BIM leaflets etc, however, this is not a place for arbitrary packages better installed on your own computer.
