Please mind an IP change!

Posted on 30-03-2015 10:00 by Nick Elshof


Today we will release a new version of the software that is running on our platform. In order to make this change as smooth as possible, we decided to change the IP address you connect to. We simply changed the IP addresses our domain (reader.usenetbucket.com) resolves to, so that you will connect to the new IP address once your computer/router flushes your DNS cache. If we wanted to keep the old IP address, we faced some downtime (about 30 minutes) in order to complete the switch, therefore we chose to simply change the IP address and let the DNS, for which it is intended, solve the rest.

As of this morning, you will be connecting to another IP address in order to log in to our platform. If you are connecting straight to our IP address, in stead of using 'reader.usenetbucket.com', it is strongly advised to switch as soon as possible:

New IP addresses:
reader.usenetbucket.com (IPv4) => 94.232.116.115
reader.usenetbucket.com (IPv6) => 2001:67c:174:101::1003
reader-ipv6.usenetbucket.com (IPv6 only)=> 2001:67c:174:101::1003

We have created a separate domain for IPv6 traffic. Some clients are unable to make the switch (between IPv4/IPv6) automatically on 'reader.usenetbucket.com'. We have tested the new software for a couple of months now, so there should not be a change in your Usenet experience. If you notice something different, please let us know, so that we can have a closer look.

Please mind: if you are using SSL connections and your DNS cache is flushed while you are connected, it is possible that you will receive a SSL error/notification. Please simply disconnect all of your connections, close your client and try again.
