NIST Net Mailing Lists

There are three mailing lists associated with NIST Net:
  1. This is the NIST Net Developer's mailing list. You can't subscribe to this list (unless, of course, you happen to be a NIST Net developer), but you are welcome to submit questions or bug reports to it.

  2. This is the NIST Net alpha bug tracking list. At some point, I'm planning to put together some sort of "official" bug report form, but for now, just email your bug report in any old way. Here is a link to the current bug list/alpha status

  3. This is the public NIST Net mailing list, for general discussion of NIST Net issues. Only list subscribers can send or receive mail on this list. You are invited to subscribe to the list when you request the NIST Net software. To subscribe or unsubscribe at any other point, send mail to (Again, send subscribe/unsubscribe requests to and not to the mailing list itself!!)

    New! is a Mailman-administered mailing list. If you are not familiar with Mailman, click here for more information about it than you probably wanted to know. (Note: this is a link outside of NIST.)

    For specific information on the nistnet list, see this local page.

    If you have trouble with the automated subscribe/unsubscribe interface described there, you can mail to have things fixed up manually. (Please mail there rather than the general nistnet list!)

Yes, there is an archive of the nistnet mailing list. With the changeover to Mailman, it should soon be accessible automatically, but in the meantime, here is a snapshot as of Wed Mar 14 16:46:08 EST 2001: Spammers have been actively harvesting mailing addresses from our servers, so the archive has been "sanitized." NIST Net mailing lists are for discussion of NIST Net-related topics only. Spamming or other off-topic posting may result in removal from the list.
