Hi,

My homeland security officer (wife) has banned EMULE use. Does anyone know a place I can download 6 piece EGTBs from without it? I found KBPKNP to test my young engine with (it seems to work) but am now eager for more.

Hi Sam,
I used to have good results using ftp to 75.126.91.34; login name: EGTB password: EGTB. Unfortunately I just tried it and the server no longer responds. Too bad, too, since it was a lot faster than eMule. Perhaps it will come back on-line later. Or does anyone know what happened to it?

I hear lots of people have been hitting up homeland security for
funds to improve security :wink: ... for $59 US you can order
the 6 DVD set ( 50 Gb of tablebases) including lots of 6 piece EGTB
as the "Total Nalimov Tablebases" product here:

Other ways to download 6-men tablebases

Several members of this community volanteered to host some of the 6-men tablebases for those who can't use eMule for some reason. Servers known to me are listed here. (Please let me know if you know other servers, or if one of the listed servers is dead).
