It is still available, however, unfortunately smlab.eg.gunma-u.ac.jp is
not directly IP-reachable from sites outside of Japan; it is connected
to the Internet but IP-reachable only from sites within Japan.
(You could not directly login or ftp my system directly from your site,
if your site is located outside of Japan.)
Of course, e-mail can reach my site without any problem.
So e-mail server at my site is still working.
Please send a empty mail to flat-netserv at smlab.eg.gunma-u.ac.jp
and then you will get a brief manual of how to use this server.
Anonymous-ftp service at my site is therefore unavailable now.
I hope my site will soon become IP reachable from outside of Japan.
