aussies.space is made up of a network of services, each of which exist on their own subdomain. the currently offered services are;
admin.aussies.space is the central hub for all things related to the administration of your account. this includes; changing password for services that use a password; adding/removing SSH keys for services that use SSH keys.
ssh YOURUSERNAME@admin.aussies.space -i PATH/TO/SSH/KEY
additionally, admin.aussies.space is where you can access your gopher and webpage hosting. currently, you can connect with any SFTP client (including modern versions of scp). filezilla is an inuitive and known working client. rsync is to come.
your webpage is accessible from https://aussies.space/~USER.
PHP is enabled.
your gopherhole is accessible from gopher://aussies.space/1/~USER.
some gopherholes are known to be broken currently due to aussies.space's recent changes. these are being fixed on a case-by-case basis.
aussies.space offers a free mail account to all users. your aussies.space email is YOURUSERNAME@aussies.space. all modern mail security features are used, such as DKIM, DMARC, SPF, etc.
to use it, you must first set a password for your account on admin.aussies.space. this password will be used for IMAP and SMTP authentication.
autoconfiguration is available for most mail clients. if you
need to configure manually, the recommended details are:
if you were a member on the original aussies.space shell server, which has been discontinued, your shell data is available on the dumps.aussies.space server. this can be accessed over scp/sftp.
to access, run
scp -i PATH/TO/SSH/KEY USERNAME@dumps.aussies.space:/dump/USERNAME.tar.xz .
sftp -i PATH/TO/SSH/KEY USERNAME@dumps.aussies.space:/dump/USERNAME.tar.xz
NOTE: if you are using an older version of OpenSSH
(less than 8.7),
scp still uses the buggy and
much more insecure SCP protocol, instead of SFTP. we use
the SFTP protocol to ensure no remote arbitary execution.
hence, you will have to use
sftp if you are
using an older version of OpenSSH.
aussies.space hosts a low-latency irc server as a part of the tilde.chat network of irc servers. this is available on IRC ssl on port 6697 on any of aussie.tilde.chat, irc.aussies.space, or au.tilde.chat.
