GotNap -- GotMilk? GotNap!




Client Formats


As you all may have noticed we experienced some problems the last few days.

Our host has fixed all these as soon as possible. It might be we will experience a few more problems, because I have agreed with our host to use GotNap as a test website onto their new hosting environment.

As well from me as from the hosting our apologies this might cause.

Changes/Additions for GotNap
A few changes/additions have been made for GotNap.
The graphs have been expanded with three new ones:
- Average files per user
- Average bytes per user
- Average filesize
Also the combination graph has been removed, since it was not good for any additional information.

We also added the option to recover your password, if you lost it.

The graphs have been deactivated for a while, this due to the fact of a heavy server load. We have been changing a few things now, all data is still gathered every 5 minutes, but we only graph the day graphs every 30 minutes and the other graphs every 60 minutes.
Enjoy the service ;-)

GotNap experienced a few hours downtime starting at 14th of June, 20:30. The server GotNap is located on got attacked and experienced a few other problems, causing that we needed some hands at the server.
Sorry for the inconvenience this has caused.

Merged Client Lists
To make it easier for users to get on all networks I have adjusted the scripts which generate the files for clients, so they also get the servers listed on
Note: that the servers of are not listed in the html serverlist here.

Sorry for the inconvenience this causes.

Added "Console nick"
I have added the option to specify with your server a "console nick". This way you can have multiple servers using one account displaying different owner "nicks".

Changes in client formats
I have made a few changes in the client formats. Since MagixNap complete supports GotNap, servers.txt has been adjusted in such a way that the latest version of MagixNap and GotNap are compatible. I will try to keep it this way together with the developer (Ixilium Software) of MagixNap.
Though to also be fully compatible with the napigator format. I have changed a few things:
- old servers.txt is in use for MagixNap
- new servers.php provides a file (called servers.txt on saving) in napigator format.

If there are any problems inform me as soon as possible. (

Special addition for Lopster and WinLop
For the clients Lopster and WinLop it is also possible to download a pre-configured serverlist.
Pre-configured means in this case that you are asked for your username and password and we put it in the file you download. Spares you configuring all those networks ;-)

Enjoy it!

Mail issues
Many people seem to experience mail problems. I recommend to use a mailaddress other then one at a free provider, since those are the ones causing problems.
If you use hotmail, mail gets delivered into your junkmail.
For people using, which is with yahoo, or using yahoo, mail also gets deliverd to junk.

GotNap is open!
Yes! We are finally open.
We have been working on this for about a week and well the result is there. It is not all finished yet, we will still be making changes to the style and a few things will be made better, since those just do not work at all or do not work perfectly.

But the most important stuff is available!

If there are any problems or you got any questions contact me using mail at or just using the message system by my nick Auke.
