New support hotline


Written 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


Written by Jakob Müller, 2020-05-03. Permalink

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.
