quite easy, doing more kernel stuff at the moment ...

No, actually not. I have a ftp access which is working and as a domain:



But I get the error message:

Bad Gateway

The proxy server received an invalid response from an upstream server.


I understand why because I didn't upload a file.

Maybe later on I will install smalltalk locally, I have an apache here
in my LAN.

Sorry, I don't understand the meaning. What do you mean by saying
"default apllication" ?

So it's required now for lug-bremen.seasidehosting.st to download an
image from http://www.seaside.st/Download/ and to install this over my
ftp access for lug-bremen.seasidehosting.st.

Is this correct so far ?

Ok, I understand. I have to install in image over ftp.

I had a look at it but I have only an easy basic question and I'am aware
now I have to install an image.

Thank's for your reply !
