There is some confusion here, the general, shared, account giving access
to all TTM plots is also available on the ttm-tests.ripe.net website; so
when that server takes over from the current www.ripe.net machine,
tt-hosts will, in principle, continue to have access to plots from all
other sites. Only the look-and-feel of the main pages will have changed.

The new authentication scheme was setup in repsonse to requests to provide
access to the results obtained with a test-box to customers of the
hostsing organisation. However, the implemented scheme is very flexible,
should a site feel strongly about it, we can change the access priviliges
such that their main .../ttm/Plots/ttXY page is not visible from the
general username/passwd combination.

These ideas have been presented before to both the mailing list and
the tt-wg at the last RIPE meeting. You may wish to (re)read the
thread "Access to RIPE-TT data from third parties (fwd)" in

as well as Henk's follow up e-mail dd. 14 Feb 2001 :


I hope this clarifies the matter. 

With best regards,
