Re: [eclipse-mirrors] Internal mirror setup


For internal mirrors, I suggest you fill out the form, using [INTERNAL] My Organization in the Organization field and send an e-mail to webmaster@xxxxxxxxxxx stating the internal host mask (for instance, sas.com) that should be used to identify any of your internal hosts.  Upon matching an incoming request from *.sas.com, we would then display the preferred mirror as your internal mirror.

For your mirror to show up in the "preferred mirror" position on our download pages, we'll need the URL (if only internally accessible) to your mirror.  This could even be

Hope this helps.

Hi Jim

At IBM we have three internal mirrors.  The eclipse foundation webmasters have configured Apache so clients with hostnames matching .ibm.com and seeking content on download.eclipse.org are automatically redirected to our internal mirror servers.  So it is quite transparent for the user.

[eclipse-mirrors] Internal mirror setup

On the "Mirror site request form", it states "You may also mirror the download site on your internal network."

However, there's no way to submit the form without giving a URL for the mirror.  This mirror would be inaccessible outside our internal network, so I don't suppose it matters if I give one, but TPTB would prefer that I not give said info unless it's a must.

I'm also wondering how I get the internal mirror set as the "preferred" (or only?) link when someone accesses the internal link.

Any thoughts/advice/instructions?
