NOTE CHANGES TO INSTRUCTIONS

[Bullet] Usernames & Passwords | Home | Top | Index |

  • Login usernames for your account services may be found on the Yellow Sheet sent to you recently by postal mail. In a very few cases, usernames were changed to conform to rules imposed by the new provider(s).
    NOTE: E-mail addresses and website URLs are not affected by rule changes -- only login names.

  • Login passwords for your account services may also be found on the Yellow Sheet.
    NOTE:Passwords known to GIAC were re-applied to subscriber accounts -- your passwords may be different from those you were using at BooNet if you had applied changes unknown to GIAC.

    After the transition, you are encouraged to change your password(s) to confidential values. The GIAC System Administrator can also change your account passwords as needed to assist with problem diagnosis.

[Bullet] Transition for Dummies | Home | Top | Index |

    The transition of GREENBELT.COM Internet services to other providers must be accomplished by May 31 and will generally proceed as follows --

    • Subscriber service accounts will be defined on IKANO (dial-up) and CENTERway (e-mail and website) servers.  WEBSITE DONE APRIL 28 / E-MAIL DONE APRIL 30 / DIAL-UP DONE MAY 8

    • GREENBELT.COM and subscriber website files will be transferred to CENTERway.  DOWNLOAD DONE APRIL 26 / UPLOAD DONE APRIL 28 / UPDATED PERIODICALLY SINCE / FINAL UPDATE WAS COMPLETED MAY 24 EXCEPT FOR ANOMALIES REPORTED IN MIGRATION LOG / WEBSITES FULLY TRANSFERRED WILL BE DELETED FROM BOONET SERVER

    • Transition instructions will be distributed to subscribers via website bulletin, e-mail and postal mail.  POSTAL MAIL DONE MAY 17 / WEBSITE DONE MAY 17 / E-MAIL DONE MAY 18 / MODIFIED ON WEBSITE MAY 23 AND MAY 24

    • Subscribers will configure their Internet software to access GREENBELT.COM services at the new providers.  START MAY 18

    • Subscribers should test all their services and report to GIAC any problems encountered. GIAC volunteers will assist subscribers as needed on a first-come, first-served basis.  START MAY 18

    • On Thursday, May 20, a request will be submitted to InterNIC to transfer the GREENBELT.COM domain name from BooNet to CENTERway. The exact time of transfer is unpredictable but is expected to occur by Friday, May 21.  START EVENING OF MAY 20 / FINALLY COMPLETED MAY 23

    • GREENBELT.COM e-mail messages will begin to arrive at the CENTERway mail server immediately upon transfer of the domain name.  HORDE WEBMAIL IS WORKING / MAIL CAN NOW BE SENT AND RECEIVED FROM HORDE / SQWEBMAIL IS STILL NOT ACCEPTING LOGINS MAY 24 P.M. / NOT CLEAR YET WHETHER MESSAGES SENT EARLIER FROM SQWEBMAIL AND/OR MESSAGES RECEIVED FROM OUTSIDE WERE LOST DURING SOFTWARE REPAIRS TODAY / PLEASE CHECK HERE AGAIN LATER FOR UPDATED REPORT

    • Messages not downloaded from the BooNet mail server prior to May 31 will be lost.

    System transition tasks are nearing completion --

    • DIAL-UP SERVICE - has been established with IKANO, the largest wholesale dial-up provider in North America. Dial-up accounts for all active subscribers have been created at IKANO. In most cases, existing dial-up account usernames and passwords remain the same; only the modem access phone numbers will change.

    • E-MAIL SERVICE - has been established with Greenbelt's CENTERway Business Directory. Mailboxes for all active subscribers have been created on the CENTERway server. In all cases, existing e-mail addresses as well as e-mail account usernames and passwords remain the same. Two new webmail systems will be available to replace BooNet's Endymion system.

    • WEB HOSTING SERVICE - has also been established with CENTERway. GREENBELT.COM, GIAC, and websites for all active subscribers have been copied to the CENTERway server. In all cases, existing website addresses (URLs) remain the same. In most cases, existing FTP account usernames and passwords remain the same.

    • SERVICE OVERLAP - Delmarva dial-up/realm services and BooNet e-mail/website/domain services will continue through the month of May. Mechanisms have been provided to access subscriber mailboxes and websites at both locations, if needed, during the overlapping service period. NOTE -- No e-mail will be copied from BooNet to CENTERway -- Any messages left on the BooNet mail server after the end of May will be lost -- Download or forward somewhere else what you want to keep.

    • DOMAIN TRANSFER - Instructions for transferring domain GREENBELT.COM to CENTERway will be submitted to the domain registrar on Thursday, May 20. A domain transfer generally takes 12-24 hours to process and propagate to all name servers across the Internet.

    The remaining transition tasks fall to each subscriber. To avoid interruption of service, you have only until May 31 to complete your reconfiguration. If you think you may need assistance, don't wait until the last day to start. We recommend that you print this document, as well as the linked documents applicable to your configuration, NOW, while you're still connected.

    DIALERS

    E-MAIL CLIENTS (mail software such as Outlook, Outlook Express or Eudora)

    • For dial-up users, this part is easy. If you're dialed into Delmarva, you'll get your old e-mail. If you're dialed into IKANO, you'll get your new e-mail.

    • For broadband users, e-mail clients will only access the mail server where the domain currently resides.

    • Mailspace limitations will be discussed by the GIAC Board in conjunction with rates.

    • Software configuration --
      • POP3 mailserver name -- mail.greenbelt.com (unchanged)
      • SMTP mailserver name -- mail.greenbelt.com (unchanged)
      • E-mail address -- <yourname>@greenbelt.com (none changed)
      • Mailbox username -- <yourname>@greenbelt.com (new syntax)
      • Mailbox password -- (none changed)

    WEBMAIL

    • We have tried to configure domain alias 'webmail.greenbelt.com' to continue to point to Endymion on BooNet's mail server after the domain transfer. If that doesn't work, you'll have to dial into Delmarva to get to Endymion and your old mail.

    • After the domain transfer, two webmail systems will be available on the CENTERway mail server, SQWebMail (with folders) and IMP Horde (without folders). Pick the system that suits your needs -- or, if you prefer --

    • Mailspace limitations will be discussed by the GIAC Board in conjunction with rates.

    • Software configuration --
      • Webmail username -- <yourname>@greenbelt.com (new syntax)
      • Webmail password -- (none changed)

    WEBSITE HOSTING

    • Webspace limitations will be discussed by the GIAC Board in conjunction with rates.

    • Website location -- (one changed - see your Yellow Sheet or the Migration Log)

    • Software configuration --
      • FTP hostname -- www.greenbelt.com
      • FTP hosttype -- Unix
      • FTP username -- <yourname> (several changed - see your Yellow Sheet or the Migration Log)
      • FTP password -- (none changed)

    DOMAIN HOSTING

    • Subscribers with registered domain names now hosted at GREENBELT.COM will need to update the domain name servers from BooNet to CENTERway.

    • Domain server configuration --
      • NS1.CENTERWAY.COM     65.61.176.14
      • NS2.CENTERWAY.COM     65.61.185.46
