John and others, There is a problem with the finger server or maybe it's just the http to finger gateway. Sometimes when you access this link http://quake.wr.usgs.gov/cgi-bin/finger?quake@................. using a browser or WinQuake you get an error message instead of the event report. The error returned is below. The ftp link ftp://ghtftp.cr.usgs.gov/pub/cnss/cnss_14.fing does work more reliably and is what I now use to add event report info in WinQuake. The problem is the file name recently changed names. It was just cnss.fing. The WinQuake file network.dat has the old name so it won't work unless you edit the file and change the name. I just released a new WinQuake beta release that has the updated network.dat that corrects the file name problem. You can download the new beta release from here http://www.seismicnet.com/wqdocs/wqbeta.html. After unzipping the file copy the winqk32.exe, network.dat and report.dat files to the directory containing WinQuake. Make sure you are not running WQ when you copy the files.

This is a gateway to "finger". Type a user@host combination in your browser's s earch dialog.
