Alternate Mozilla 0.9.9 Download Locations

Interest in 0.9.9 has been so great that we overwhelmed the 100 Mbit full duplex link from ftp.mozilla.org with heavy traffic." Because of this, mozilla.org and Netscape have set up a new set of servers (http, ftp) to handle the load. Also, you can check the mirrors list for servers closer to you.

<ftp://ftp.NETSCAPE.com> used to be load balanced via simple RoundRobin DNS and there were other DNS entries for things like 'ftp22.netscape.com' whose IP would still be part of the round robin... it would appear to still be the case: # host <ftp://ftp.netscape.com> <ftp://ftp.netscape.com> has address 64.12.168.202 <ftp://ftp.netscape.com> has address 64.12.168.203 <ftp://ftp.netscape.com> has address 64.12.168.204 <ftp://ftp.netscape.com> has address 64.12.168.11 <ftp://ftp.netscape.com> has address 64.12.168.15 <ftp://ftp.netscape.com> has address 205.188.212.74 <ftp://ftp.netscape.com> has address 205.188.212.75 <ftp://ftp.netscape.com> has address 205.188.212.76
