NOTICE (Updated December 18 2018): FSF public IP addresses are changing between December 20 and January 7th If you have hardcoded the IP address of any GNU/FSF servers in those ranges in any code or configuration files, they will need to be updated. If you refer to our servers by their DNS name, such as "", then that will continue to work. You should use the DNS name wherever possible. There is a chance this change may temporarily cause some of the email we send to change its spam score. If you receive email from our servers, please check your spam email box and if you see any email from us there, please mark it as not spam so that your email provider will not see it as spam in the future. When? Most IP addresses will change on December 20-21. For machines where the IP change requires coordination with parties outside the FSF, such as volunteer administered machines, the old and new addresses will work simultaneously until January 7th, when the old IP may be removed at any time. If you think we might need to coordinate with you and we haven't contacted you yet, please email We expect all machines to keep the last number of their IPv4 address and the last 80 bits of their IPv6 address. On IPv4, we are changing from to And for IPv6, from 2001:4830:134::/48 to 2001:470:142::/48 So, for example will change from to and from 2001:4830:134:4::a to 2001:470:142:4::a (Update from October 13 2017): Because of security concerns with plaintext protocols, we still intend to disable the FTP protocol for downloads on this server (downloads would still be available over HTTP and HTTPS), but we will not be doing it on November 1, 2017, as previously announced here. We will be sharing our reasons and offering a chance to comment on this issue soon; watch this space for details. If you maintain scripts used to access over FTP, we strongly encourage you to change them to use HTTPS instead. -- If you have any problems with the GNU software or its downloading, please refer your questions to . There are several mirrors of this archive, a complete list can be found on You might want to use a mirror closer to you. Non-GNU programs that were formerly in gnu/ have moved to gnu/non-gnu/. Most of them were just pointers in the format program.README. If you are looking for such a file, be sure to check gnu/non-gnu/. Archives of the GNU mailing lists can be accessed or downloaded via the web from; they are no longer available by ftp. The FSF provides this archive as a service to GNU users.
