Redirect URLs from

Hi there,

I recently realized that now redirects to - which is fine. However, the checksum files are on external domains, e.g. or .

Is this the expected behavior? Are these domains trustworthy? Thanks and kind regards, Gabor

Hi Gabor! We have recently implemented a mirror redirector (with the mirrorbits software) and one of the IP points to that new service (the other one is still handled by the old mirror).

I will blog about this new service in the next days (and probably document it correctly in the KB).

This is the normal behavior, if you are interested, you can take a look at how mirrorbits works (

Finally, and FYI, you can also pick any of the mirror from if you want to be sure to always use the same mirror.

Regards, Faustin
