Hi,

Is there a problem with Fibs as I can't connect?

It says 'unknown host'.

Regards,

Garp

The best place to find FIBS status is at http://twitter.com/fibsdotcom -- I update it whenever I learn of problems.

The short answer is yes.  I was notified this afternoon that it was down.  I'm out of town, so it almost certainly be down until tomorrow evening.

Seems like a DNS related issue. fibs.com doesnt resolve right.

dns.kpmb.net & dns.fibs.com isnt responding kind of it seems.

If the need gets to big, I guess tigergammon.com might help out and relieve for some time....

tigergammon.dyndns-home.com     Try this we are all there ...

Very easy all you do is change the server address in pref's and leave the portal the same 4231

Hi Vic,

For some reason when I connect to the Tiger Fibs, it goes through on connect but then at the end of the text scroll it says " you are disconnected". Why? Any suggestions?

Thanks Much

It's not really a DNS issue-- the DNS failure is the symptom not the cause.

I'm currently sitting in the Burbank airport waiting for my flight.  I'll fix it as soon as I possibly can.

Patti's flight back to SF has been delayed a couple of hours hence the reappearance of the FIBS server will be LATE this evening SF time. Given what I know of Patti I suspect her first act when she arrives home will be to turn on the kettle for some caffeine and then, rather than collapsing into an armchair as would most, she'll reboot the PC that runs FIBS. Meanwhile I'm of to Tigergammon!

Perhaps you didn't register on the server? You need to register an account there first.

FIBS and tigergammon run on two different servers.

There's no "you guys"... there's just me.  I'm the chief cook and bottle washer, network engineer, janitor, and customer service.

When I landed at SFO I was supposed to head to the office, but I went home instead.  I found the problem and put in a temporary fix, and now FIBS is back up.  I expect to do some maintenance tonight that will require a very brief (1-2 minute) outage, while I put in a permanent fix.

Any word yet? When I try to connect it say "connected" but then at the bottom it says "access denied" "you are disconnected". Just wondering if it is something wrong with my settings or if fibs is still down. BTW, thanks for all you do Patti!

FIBs is fine, 'access denied' means either your password or username is entered incorrectly [assuming you werent badly behaved enough to get yourself a ban  Wink ]

If your username and password are being entered automatically by your interface, retype them, sometimes they get corrupted.

If you can't remember your password, you are a bit stuffed, but try Patti anyway, there may be *something* that can be done, if you entered a valid email address with your username.

Your interface may also remember it, if you can find a way to unlock that information, it may either remind you what your password is, or tell you the actual password.
