New support hotline
HotlineWritten by Markus Helbig, 2020-06-04. Permalink
We are glad to announce that we can offer a new support hotline (at 0351 89670993) to you. Because of some technical difficulties when changing our phone operator we unfortunately needed to switch to this new number. We are trying to be contactable by phone at least on Mondays and Thursdays 7-8pm. In the contact box on our website, there will be a hint (green bullet) if the number is additionally reachable during other times. We are sorry for not being able to offer personal support for such a long time.
Outside of our support hours, you can of course leave us a ticket.
MTU adjustments Reichenbachstraße

Due to construction work, the fiber optic connection to Reichenbachstraße is currently not available.
If there are problems using some internet services, the MTU must be set to 1420 bytes in the router/computer. The exact procedure for this can be found in the manual of the corresponding device.

On 2020-04-16 the uplink of Reichenbachstraße has to be changed to an alternative uplink due to longer construction works. This will cause outages from 6pm on. We try to keep the outage short as possible.
No office hours until further notice
All dormitoriesWritten by Tobias Kadenbach, 2020-03-12. Permalink
All of our offices will remain closed until further notice, but mail support will continue to take place.
On the March 12th the Saxon State Ministry for Social Affairs and Social Cohesion published a warning stating that "if there are events with fewer than a thousand participants, it needs to to be checked carefully whether these must take place." Based on this recommendation and the decision of the TU Dresden to postpone the start of lectures to April 27, 2020, we have decided to cancel all office hours at least by April 27, 2020 as a precautionary measure for our voluntary active and our passive members.
If you experience any problems, our ticket system and our email support at firstname.lastname@example.org are of course still available. To compensate the cancelled office hours we've set up a support hotline (0351 21715530). We try to be reachable at the best possible rate during the times of our office hours (Monday and Thursday, 7pm to 8pm).
If you want to become a member, you can deposit the documents in our mailboxes. You can find these at Hochschulstraße 50, Wundtstraße 5 and Borsbergstraße 34. Please note that these must be complete (including all checkboxes, signatures, and the data protection declaration (on the back)) and legible, and that the processing of applications can take up to a week. Please don't forget to label your letterbox with your name so that we are able to deliver your copy of the application.
We wish all our members the best of health and hope to see you again during our office hours soon.

Shutdown of Steam HTTP cache

We just shut down our HTTP cache. Since this service was only available for Steam and only a few members used it, there will be little to now impact on our network. The shutdown enables us to take measures to increase the reliability of other services.
