This topic duplicates an earlier one; the forum suggested a fresh discussion rather than a reply to the earlier one.

If I open http://www.oberon.ethz.ch/ and click on the link "license agreement" at the end of the paragraph, the response is "Alert.  550 Failed to change directory."  I messaged oberon@lists.inf.ethz.ch about this at 2011-09-16 but no improvement.

Incidentally, a license agreement is important.  An html page served by http would be better than a txt page served by ftp.

Best regards,           ... Peter E.

I got the same message, it links to: http://ftp://ftp.inf.ethz.ch/pub/ETHOberon/license.txt

When I try the directory, which should contain the license, I find the one and only file: ftp://ftp.inf.ethz.ch/pub/ETHOberon/readme.txt
which says:

Welcome to the world of ETH Oberon!
-----------------------------------

All files have been removed from this ftp server and relocated to

ftp://ftp.ethoberon.ethz.ch

For more information, visit www.ethoberon.ethz.ch
-------------------------------------------------------
going there you can find the license here:
ftp://ftp.ethoberon.ethz.ch/Oberon/ETHOberon/license.txt

but I agree, the link on http://www.oberon.ethz.ch/ should be corrected.

Thanks for explaining Bernhard.  The contact page also needs updating.  At least there should be an address for a Webmaster.
