Available mirrors

Whenever possible, please use a mirror near you. The following sites are mirroring the PF HOWTO:


If you want to mirror this site, please download the site tarball, which you can unpack in your mirror directory.

If you're periodically updating your mirror, please configure your HTTP client to use timestamping, so the main site doesn't get swamped by mirrors downloading the same site tarball over and over again. For wget, this can be done by adding -N option.
