VAFS5 Client Update [PLEASE READ]

Post by SoutheastVirtual » October 16th, 2013, 4:41 pm

Attention to all users,
 
With the transition over to the new server there have been some delays with propagation.  Mike is reporting (as of 12PM EST - Oct 16, 2013) that there are currently over 90 pilots flying online from all around the world which indicates that many are now past the issue of propagation.  Many users have been posting their identical issues all over the Forums; they have now been relocated to this temporary category.  This category will be archived once propagation is complete.  We remind you to read the <a href="http://www.myvafinancials.com/v5/index. ... es/">Forum Posting Rules</a> before posting (regardless of the urgency of your request for help), post in the proper categories, look for similar topics, and if new topics are created, an appropriate title is required; not "Error" or "Not working".  Additional information pertaining to propagation and ways to speed it up are included below.
 
What is Propagation and How Long Does it Take?
 
Name server changes usually take 24 to 48 hours to fully start working. This period, called propagation, is the projected length of time it takes for root name servers and cache records across the entire web to be updated with your website's DNS information. Because of propagation, not all visitors will be directed to your new name servers on your new hosting account; some visitors will continue to be directed to your old name servers on your old hosting account until propagation is complete.
 
How quickly visitors are directed to the new name servers depends on their physical location, internet service provider and some luck; it is not something VAFS has control over. Once propagation is complete, your site will appear on our server and your email will be fully functional.
 
There is no definitive way to tell when propagation is complete. During the first 48 hours, even if you are able to see your site on the new server, your next door neighbor might still be seeing the site on the old server.
 
How can I speed up the process of propagation?
 
DO AT YOUR OWN RISK!
 
Open up your local internet connection.
Right click on the IP4 protocal and select properties.
Click the radio button that says "Use the following DNS addresses"
Enter the following into the DNS servers:
8.8.8.8
8.8.4.4
 
Those are the google DNS servers, which propagate faster than what your ISPs DNS servers do.

Pat for Mike
