                      - * < DOOM FTP/WWW Site List > * -
                                 Apr 27, 1999

  Oct 13 - Removed Brazil mirror, added Greek mirror, changed 3 IP addresses,
           Deleted 11 URLs, Updated 2 URLs, Added 3 URLs.
| Apr 27 - Holy Cow.  Has it been THAT long???  Sorry 'bout that.  Deleted
|          Illinois, France, Italy, 1 Aussie mirrors, changed 3 IP addresses.

  NOTE: A '|' in column 1 means that this line was changed or added
        since the last edition of this sites list.

  NOTE: A disturbing trend that I've noticed is the lack of support for
        simpler browsers.  Some authors even refuse to provide pages to
        non-frames-capable browsers.  These are noted below, and will be
        removed if they do not attempt to provide info to *everyone*.

  NOTE: Various html versions of this document exist, including this one:

Primary DOOM FTP Sites and Mirrors
  The "Primary" site contains the "master copy" of the DOOM FTP Archive.
  Contributions can be uploaded to the /pub/idgames/incoming directory,
  but LMPs should be uploaded to the /pub/idgames/lmps/incoming directory.
  "Mirror" sites each have a duplicate of the primary's idgames hierarchy
  (sometimes with a different name) that is updated on a daily basis.
  If a mirror site is closer to you, please use it instead of the primary.
  Log in as "anonymous" or "ftp".  Use your e-mail address as the password.
  Some ftp sites also support WWW access (noted by http URL in list below).

   California: (Primary Site)
|     Arizona:
     New York:
|     Austria:
|    Portugal:     
    S. Africa:          


  SPECIAL NOTE: John Van Essen (that's me!) created a WWW page showing the hierarchy in a graphical directory
        tree format with hyperlinks to each directory at has full tree. has fewer subdirs.
