Server list

Due to the international nature of these technical details, this information is provided only in English. Feel free to contact us with any inquiries you may have.

Trends and analysis

Due to the continuously increasing amount of information, we've moved stuff concerning trends and technical history to a separate subpage - Technical trends.

Users and hostnames

Virtually all of our services for external users are located on servers with a primary reversing hostname of <servername>.ext.b2.fi. Ext in this context means external, as in services used by others than members of Säätöyhteisö B2 ry. No person appearing with an ext.b2.fi host on IRC or via his/her email address is a member of B2.

Exceptions include our primary web server zelgadis.b2.fi, which hosts, in addition to projects handled internally by B2, some high volume websites of our closer affiliates. Also, personal websites and other projects run by our members may of course reside on any of our servers.

Physical servers

This contains a list of all server hardware operating primarily or exclusively for Säätöyhteisö B2 ry. All servers are hosted by PahaIP (Pahalammen verkot) in Tampere and Hämeenlinna. Hostnames are hyperlinks when a website for the server computer or virtual host is available. This website may contain further details on the server computer as well as backgrounds on why a specific name was chosen for a certain server.
