www.zyxelforum.de is down.
Do you know why?

    Excellent question. Unfortunately the central-nas repository by mijzelf is also down. Therefore all the plugins are gone, if you press the refresh button within the App Center.

    I asked mijzelf if it is a short interruption. I'm awaiting his reply. If all apps from him (Meta Repository) are gone, I will sell all my ZyXEL NAS.

    So sad... all the knowledge for several jears seems to be gone.

    Update: I found mijzelfs answer within this forum.

    Seems the German/EU GDPR (DSGVO) are the culprit. I also stopped a big political forum I've administered because of the personal legal DSGVO risks and expected additional time consuming work.

    Very bad that no r/o archive of the German ZYXEL forum seems to be available too.

    I don't think so. The forum software is still running, it's only serving empty pages. You can see that by entering real and fake urls:


    gives an empty page, while

    gives a 404.

    I think either the database is crashed, or the forum got an incompatible update, causing an exception.

    Mijzelf, how to contact the company which supported the community in the past? What happened to Tobias?

    The company is Ingenieurbüro Engelhardt . That name in combination wtih ZyXEL gives some Google hits. AFAIK Tobias is still working there, but last year he was no longer active on the forum.

    Dipl.-Ing. Dirk Engelhardt's phone is active but signal changes to busy after seconds. ZYXEL Germany Support ist unable (maybe unwilling?) to forward my contact details to current server hardware owner where the old German forum ist hosted. 

    Very bad.

    Neither unternehmensregister.de nor the federal database of insolvencies gave a clue what happened when searching for Engelhardt. It's a pity.
