  • Your name or organization name / title and website address (if exists) to be added to our Supporters page.

Server Requirements

  • Minimum 4 GB free space.
  • Minimum 1 Gigabit/s upload speed. (The upload speed of the mirror will be tested. For the service quality, we only can accept the mirrors without a bandwidth cap).
  • Rsync service for synchronization of the required files.

Note: When a visitor clicks a download link on our website, (according to visitor and mirror IP geography informations) the visitor will be automatically redirected to the closest available mirror by our download script.

We will add your link to our Supporters page.

Our rsync address is: rsync://rsync.hirensbootcd.org/mirror

4 hours synchronization frequency (or any other appropriate frequency for you) is appropriate for us. Here is an example command can be used in the crontab:
