Mirror Multiplexor

In order to reduce network load, it is recommended that you use the Comprehensive Archive Network (CTAN) host which is located in the closest network proximity to your site. Alternatively, you may wish to obtain a copy of the CTAN via DVD.

CTAN has a mirror multiplexor service. Point your browser to

https://mirror.ctan.org/

for automatic redirection to a mirror in or close to your country.

Note that the multiplexor always redirects to a https mirror. If you intend to us another protocol then you have to do it manually. For this the list also contains non-https URLs.

Updates

Please send updates to this list to ctan@ctan.org.

Master Host

The master host of the Comprehensive Archive Network is:

[germany] ftp.dante.de (Cologne, Germany)

  • rsync access on rsync://rsync.dante.ctan.org/CTAN/
  • World Wide Web access on https://ctan.org/

Becoming a CTAN Mirror

You can help out the community by running a mirror of the Comprehensive Archive Network.

On the page Becoming a CTAN Site you can read more.

Monitoring of the Mirrors

We monitor mirrors to check that they are up to date. If a mirror falls behind then mirror.ctan.org will not redirect to it.
