Is this of any help to you ?

Thanks, yes it is. I don't recall seeing the security updates listed in there last time I looked (the very last Japan mirror includes them) -- that must be the server I was remembering.

Am I reading that right, that it says I shouldn't be using ftp.jp.debian.org as a source, but rather hard-coding in one of the mirrors? What does that mean? I've been using ftp.jp.debian.org for years, have i been naughty somehow?

Thanks for your help.


No problem.

I've read that link a few times, and I am not sure what you've seen that seen that makes you think that, I can only think its the below bit of text, but I think this is only for those who are wanting to create a mirror perhaps, but I am not 100% sure.

That being said however I think it's perfectly fine to use ftp.jp.debian.org, mainly due to the fact that the debian iso all have ftp.uk.debian.org as the primary mirror for the net install cd's, and this is all I ever use, and ftp.jp.debian.org is also a primary debian mirror. See http://ftp.jp.debian.org/debian/README.mirrors.html

I don't think you've been naughty at all.
