Welcome to our new Parrot Mirror Director

Posted on Posted in tips

How many of you have noticed that your sources.list was automatically switched to mirrordirector.archive.parrotsec.org and the system upgrades were taken from strange servers which were not listed in your apt configuration?

This is what happened in the last few days, in fact we have created a mirror director that automatically detects your geographical location (from your ip address) and redirects you to the nearest mirror available.

Our project is powered by many many servers around the world, most of them are freely offered to us and maintained by research centers, universities, internet providers, user communities or other companies interested in supporting a FOSS project like ours
