    EMBC Internet Down

    Just got home from work where at ten to five this evening our EMBC connection has gone down! well i can recieved my freeserve e-mail and radio1 was streaming but access to any web page, the gateway and e-mail was totally down.
    I tried rininig EMBC helpdesk and all i got was the BT pre-recorded lady saying "This number is temporarily out of order". Then I tried Dot ICT but there helpdesk closes at 4:30!

    Now I'm home I can't get on to the Gateway and our website is down
    Anyone else experiecne problems?

    Regards
    Robert!

    Re: EMBC Internet Down

    Just checked our EMBC connection, our school hosted website etc are all ok, but I can`t connect to embc`s webview or even their website!

    (This is from home)

    Maybe a fault in their server farm?

    Could well be! ah well it was annoying for me i was creating some training on the gateway, but it annoyed the Bursar even more when she said she had to get the ema payments in tonight at the latest. She didn't take too kindly to me suggesting that perhaps it could have been scheduled ealier! lol

    If its still down tomorrow the kids and staff shall be having a nice moan! for some reason IT lesson and net access go hand in hand. In my day (only 3yrs ago lol) we hardly used the internet in IT lessons (expect general sufing when the teacher wasn't looking lol) in comparison. Although it does mean that access to EduGeek and The Register will be limited!

    Must admit 2 net connections is very handy, I have that and when one goes down a quick change of cables and were off again. Worry about kicking some butt later on.

    We will be ditching NTL soon ... but we will be looking at a cheap ADSL line as a backup.

    Re: EMBC Internet Down

    Well just got back, checked me e-mails and check the gateway and it appears to be working so hopefully that is true of our web access soon found tomorrow as i walk in with staff badgering me about why isn't working. or there usual line if anything is wrong they ring up saying the server is down! lol funny really because when i look over my monitor the servers appear to be running normally and i'm having no problems!

    The best one we had the other day was a teacher rang up saying the projector has gone all green the bulb is on its way out. So i walk go straight to the wall socket (that has been damaged by a teacher on a chair!) push it in the slight and bingo i've managed to fix the bulb! lol

    ttfn
