7. What is the present state (activity) of your project? (Your comments - about 1 page)

We provide all kinds of services, but for limited number of users (what kinds of services, what kinds of users?)

CCN project is implemented in close connection with infrastructure of regional segment of scientific-educational network FREEnet. So it uses some telecommunications and network equipment of the center in Chelyabinsk. That is why CCN users are mostly scientific, educational, budgetary and social institutions and their staff. Number of companies and individuals is very small. All of them have access via CCN only if they collaborate with the center as volunteers.

The network service pack includes:

    • web hosting;
    • chat server;
    • forums or virtual bulletin board;
    • personal email accounts;
    • email gateway for FTP / HTTP / Usenet;
    • CCN mailing list.

The set depends on what kind of access has any participants of CCN project. Today there are two types of connections — via PPP and UUCP. The last case allows only usage of e-mail.
