John and others,

There is a problem with the finger server or maybe it's just the http to finger
gateway. Sometimes when you access this link using a browser
or WinQuake you get an error message instead of the event report. The error
returned is below.

The ftp link does work more
reliably and is what I now use to add event report info in WinQuake. The
problem is the file name recently changed names. It was just cnss.fing. The
WinQuake file network.dat has the old name so it won't work unless you edit the
file and change the name.

I just released a new WinQuake beta release that has the updated network.dat
that corrects the file name problem. You can download the new beta release from
here After unzipping the file
copy the winqk32.exe, network.dat and report.dat files to the directory
containing WinQuake. Make sure you are not running WQ when you copy the files.
