News.CIS.DFN.DE has undergone a recent name change...
News Server News.CIS.DFN.DE Name Change
"From: email@example.com (Vera Heinau) Newsgroups: alt.free.newsservers Subject: [DFN-CIS] Change of Name Date: 10 Jul 2003 14:44:35 GMT Organization: Freie Universitaet Berlin Lines: 46 Message-ID: NNTP-Posting-Host: komodowaran.cis.fu-berlin.de (22.214.171.124) X-Trace: fu-berlin.de 1057848275 6124906 126.96.36.199 (16 17 18)
To all users of News.CIS.DFN.DE,
There will be some changes within the organization of the news-service known as "News.CIS.DFN.DE" and operated by the computer center of Freie Universitaet Berlin, Germany.
The computer center of Freie Universitaet Berlin (ZEDAT) has taken over the task of supplying a central news-service for member organizations of the German National Research and Education Network (DFN). As a result of this, the well-known name "News.CIS.DFN.DE" will be used exclusively in connection with this new service (DFNNetNews) from now on.
Individually registered users that do not take part in DFNNetNews will continue to have access to the service using two new names:
- News.Individual.NET (for international users) - News.Individual.DE (for German-speaking users)
Announcements that concern this service will be tagged with "[Individual]" in the subject line.
The change of name concerns both the name of the news-server itself and the URLs that point to the web-space connected with the service:
As the service provided is identical for both servers, it is neither necessary nor possible to register for both.
Note: ===== Existing configurations will continue to work without the need for modification because the technical separation of services will take place internally on the server-side.
We do ask you to follow the new installation guides available via
for future setups though. Please make a special note of the new e-mail addresses for registration:
firstname.lastname@example.org (international users) email@example.com (German-speaking users)
