Hi everyone,

Since downloads.nas-central.org has been down for a long time, and I wanted to install a few packages made by the users from there regardless I put up a mirror website here: [Click me]. Maybe someone will find it useful.

And the whole wget made mirror from January, 2019 is also available in a compressed archive here.

It should work as a remote repository for ffp and MetaRepo too however I had to setup some strict rate-limits in order to avoid the abuse. Currently it's 1 simultaneous connection per IP and 2 MB/s because my small server has a bad uplink. Let me know if you would like to have more bw.

    Hi MrDini. Nice to see you back. Thanks for the mirror.
    For my repo there's another mirror at http://zyxel.diskstation.eu/Users/Mijzelf/zypkg-repo/, which contains some newer packages.

    Amazing! May I clone those and merge the new packages together with the backup?

    Can I just add the URL above to Metarepositories page?  
    Or is there another way to change URL?

    You can add any directory, or url to an directory, which contains a ZYPKGS or ZYPKG_INFO.tgz file to let MetaRepository find it.

    It should work, yes.

    Hi MrDini, thanks very much for this.  I have updated openssl to the latest version so I had to update many packages that depended on it and the data you posted helped me a lot.

    Hi MrDini, I crossposted your information to another forum [Click me]. I hope this is OK for you.

    Yeah, absolutely fine. That's why I made the mirror. :smile:

    Thanks for your work on this certainly makes it easier to find ffp packages rather than archive.org. Thanks for updating slacker to work with https repo's too :smile:
