Last week the server was not accessible from 2015-07-14 21:20 EEST to 2015-07-16 16:35 EEST, because my ISP MTel (that bought Megalan few years ago) was having problems with managing MAC addresses and Layer 2 connectivity (i.e. as far as I understood it was due to some "provisioning"). No matter the case, I found it totally unacceptable to be without Internet for almost 48 hours given there was no physical disruption of the connection. Mtel's support was not able to do anything to help me restore the connection (I was required to pass the so called "Captive Portal" even though it was clear that I'm not able to do so because of the issues on Mtel's side).

So I changed the ISP last Friday (17.07) and I'm now with Vivacom hopefully for the better. Of course the new ISP come with the new static IP address (, so the server was not accessible also over the weekend until the DNSes were synchronized.
