NDMC.EDU.PH has moved!

  • email server
  • applications server
  • proxy server
  • perimeter firewall
  • internet gateway for offices

All major offices of the school are using e-mail and the Internet for research.  With my estimate, it would take around 2 weeks or more before Globe connects us.  Since we will be disconnected this month, I decided to move the three important servers on my Webfaction account so that we will have a minimal downtime.
