Also see nullroute hosts.
Nullroute doesn't run anything serious, it is just a place for experiments; infrastructure for the sake of infrastructure. This means that servers come and go, the services are often misconfigured, the only account is "
grawity", and there really isn't anything worth offering.
But I've learned a lot by simply tinkering around with various network services. And it's much easier to study a working implementation than hundreds of pages of RFCs, so that's what I'm doing here.
I sometimes grab copies of various old websites or FTP sites (frequently just weeks before they go down). A few of those are accessible as mirrors.
There is a local Git server hosting some of my hobby projects (mainly ones which are not fit for GitHub) as well as various infrastructure and this website itself.
Also a few miscellaneous pages:
Other things that may or may not be running at any particular moment:
A few services in detail:
/afs/nullroute.lt. It has almost no files (unlike many other AFS cells that have publicly accessible homedirs with 3 decades' worth of files), it's just… there, primarily as an exhibit of late 1980s infrastructure. I would really like to get DCE DFS (aka AFS4) working as well.
imap://anonymous@<host>/Public/Unix(similar to the IETF list archive), but it was shut down to simplify things. This service worked through a combination of a "public" namespace being present in the IMAP tree and the SASL ANONYMOUS mechanism being listed in Dovecot's
/n/foo. The former is implemented via AutoFS, while the
/nshortcut is done as a tiny fuse.slashn filesystem.
