A couple of weeks ago, I posted a request for info regarding connectivity
to the United Arab Emirates. Here's a brief followup on what I've been
able to locate.
Bitnet - nothing available, per Bitnic
FidoNet - nothing in nodelist
UUCP - There is a host, according to UUNET staff, but it appears to be
running on only an irregular basis and does not seem to be considered a
reliable connection by UUNET.
Internet - UAE does not appear to be part of GulfNet. I followed up on
contact information from whois for UAE hosts AENIC.NET and ECCSR.EDU.
Mail to postmaster@ failed for both. A followup with the technical contact
for ECSSR.EDU at PSI indicated that that host was alive and taking mail,
but I haven't been able to reach it. Followup with APNIC, the technical
contact for AENIC.NET produced no response.
I'm going to continue to work on this, probably pursuing the ECSSR.EDU
connection, since it's the only one specifically alleged to be up and
working. If anyone has any tips on how to reach them, or on other
possibilities I haven't explored, I'd welcome hearing from them. Again,
since I'm not subscribed to the list, replies via e-mail would be
Thanks to all who have helped!
