[fpc-devel] Website connectivity

In the past, some people reported problems connecting to the main FPC
website or the main SVN repository. Typical symptoms were empty HTML
pages, but pinging to the server working fine.

The reason for this - which has been given often - was the atypical
window size of the router in front of the server: Some ISP's routers 
or network configuration could not cope with this atypical window size.

Thanks to sustained testing and investigation of Jonas Maebe, a workaround
has now been found and applied, and the website should now be accessible 
for everyone. It may not be as fast as it could be, but at least it should 
work in all cases.
